Are you a concerned citizen with an interest in helping young people in our community?

If  so – join the “Friends of the TYS Foundation”!

Friends of the TYS Foundation partnered with Roger Brown’s in Olde Towne Portsmouth to host a fundraiser, complete with great food, the More Cowbell Band, and a silent auction!

Friends of the TYS Foundation consists of business leaders,
young professionals, and others with an emerging  interest
in philanthropy who are interested in forwarding the mission
of the Tidewater Youth Services Foundation.

Friends of the TYS Foundation have three primary goals:
–  Raise Awareness
–  Raise Funds
–  Volunteer

Here’s just a few of the ways the group achieves these goals:

  • Promoting the TYS Foundation through social networking;
  • Volunteering and inviting friends to Foundation events;
  • Sharing individual skills through a speakers’ bureau;
  • Providing in-kind support in keeping with the individual’s area of expertise;
  • Promoting the TYS Foundation within their own workplace  by:
    – Raising awareness about our organization and our mission
    –  Sharing information about our participation in the United Way, the Combined  Federal Campaign, and the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign
    –  Sharing information on volunteer opportunities/needs.

“The Friends group is a great bunch of people committed to ‘walking the walk.’  And with our help, young men and women are now walking toward a brighter day.”
Ted Bartlett, Recruiting Chair
