FPPTA RELIEF FUND
Established by our members, for our members.
The FPPTA Relief Fund was established in 2010 with the proceeds of the Annual Associate’s Charitable Golf Classic along with donations from Associate and Active Members. Each year, any excess funds raised by the Golf Classic are deposited into the Relief Fund account. Since its inception, the Relief Fund has assisted fourteen FPPTA families with gift amounts varying according to each family’s needs.
The Relief Fund has a governing committee of seven members representing the Associates, the Board of Directors, and the Trustees. The committee is comprised of Co-chairs Katie Byrne and Steve Aspinall, and committee members Howard Bos, Janna Hamilton, Tim Olsen, George Farrell, and Ken Harrison.
To be eligible for assistance, you must be a member in good standing with the FPPTA. An online application is available on the FPPTA website. Once the application is received, a number will be assigned to the case and the recipient member will remain anonymous (except to the committee and the FPPTA CEO) to encourage members to apply.
The Committee meets three times a year at each of the Trustees Schools and the Annual Conference to select fund recipients. In emergency cases, the process will be handled via e-mail and then reconfirmed at the next meeting.
If you or someone you know falls upon hard times, whether it is a medical need, unemployment need, or are the widow/widower of a fallen comrade, please reach out to the Relief Fund.
Thank you to everyone for supporting and donating to the Relief Fund. We have heard from fund recipients that the assistance we provided was extremely helpful and appreciated.
If you have questions or a request, please contact Steve Aspinall at Chave@aspinall.us, Kim Ryals at Kim@fppta.org, or one of the committee members.
