Helping to improve our quality of life and economy.

T-MG Fund

Our Goal

The T-MG Community Foundation Fund's goal is to help improve the quality of life and economy of the community and surrounding area. We are locally operated and assist with gifts, memorials, donations, and estate plan giving for the benefit of Tilden and Meadow Grove area citizens. We provide financing for charitable projects and empower other community-oriented individuals to help their local economies.

The T-MG Community Foundation Fund is an affiliate of the Nebraska Community Foundation. The Nebraska Community Foundation is a highly respected foundation in our state, with national visibility. Making a difference is what this Nebraska foundation strives to do. There are many opportunities to volunteer and help improve the community.

We are a locally controlled “Affiliated Fund” of the Nebraska Community Foundation (NCF). This nationally respected statewide organization has an impact on 255 communities in Nebraska. NCF was established in 1993 by a group of nine visionary leaders representing concerns of rural communities throughout the state.

Through its affiliated funds, the Nebraska Community Foundation network controls over $107 million dollars of assets. 

The T-MG Community Foundation Fund was organized in the summer of 2003 to receive gifts and memorials to provide charitable community services for the benefit of Tilden and Meadow Grove. Those gifts can be given on an unrestricted basis or can be designated for a specific charitable purpose.
