2013 Annual Report

Annual Report 2012

Consider some options to shape the East Texas your grandchildren will inherit

  • Create a charitable fund to support a variety of nonprofits in your community as needs change over time

  • Create an endowment fund to support one or more of your favorite charities

  • Create a scholarship fund to support deserving students from your community

ETCF can work with you and your advisors to create a plan of lifetime and testamentary giving that will help reach your charitable goals.


East Texas Communities Foundation supports philanthropy by offering simple ways for donors to achieve their long-term charitable goals by:

  • Serving as a flexible and cost-effective vehicle for donors to invest in the community
  • Promoting philanthropy in all its forms
  • Building permanent endowments for our region's changing issues and opportunities

 Shine Your Light Community Campaign 2014 is underway! 

The Shine Your Light Community Campaign shines a light each year on several organizations that are doing good works in our community by serving our neighbors who are in need. The beneficiary organizations this year are Samaritan Counseling Center, Hospice of East Texas, Salvation Army, PATH, Meals on Wheels, East Texas Food Bank, Gateway to Hope and the "Gospel Village" ministry of Boys & Girls Club of East Texas. One of these organizations will be featured each day in a series of articles in the Tyler Morning Telegraph. Show your support for these local agencies by making a tax-deductible contribution by Dec. 31st by clicking on the Shine Your Light logo.
