TMA Philadelphia Wins 2016 Special Consideration Award

Chapter Award WinnerTMA Philadelphia for Summer Charity Classic: 2016 Special Consideration
TMA Philadelphia’s board created the Charitable Activities Committee to help focus the chapter’s philanthropic efforts and to celebrate TMA’s mission of renewal. The committee created the Summer Charity Classic event. In the past three years, this event has raised over $30,000 for two charities: the Consumer Bankruptcy Assistance Project (CBAP) and Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) of Delaware County. 

In addition, $12,000 has been raised via the chapter’s sponsorship of Compass, an organization that provides pro-bono consulting services to non-profits. Ten TMA members have volunteered their time working on a Compass project and have said the projects satisfy their firm's pro-bono requirements with work that is much more satisfying than other alternatives.

TMA Philadelphia raised over $42,000 for three worthwhile causes while raising awareness of very critical issues within the community, provided several hundred hours of project work, and brought the chapter closer by providing a vehicle to celebrate the TMA mission of renewal through the Summer Charity Classic.
