What is “I Cared for One?”
“I Cared for One” October, 17, 2015 is the annual fall fundraising event for the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes. It is a business casual event featuring dinner, auction, activities and entertainment.
Purpose of “I Cared for One” Fall Fundraising Event
The purpose of this event is multifaceted. First is to raise the awareness of the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes and its ministries to children. Second is to raise funds for the current IMPACT Campaign. The IMPACT Campaign seeks to raise 5.2 Million Dollars over a three year period. We have currently raised 2 million dollars, in gift and commitments, toward that goal. The items to be funded through the IMPACT Campaign are as follows;
DENISE AND GEORGE SHINN FOSTER CARE PROGRAM – $2,430,725 – Funding (three years) for dedicated staff to identify, screen, train, certify, and support families to receive children in the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services system for foster care. These dollars provide foster care staff for each of our three regions: (West , Middle , and East  Tennessee).CHILDREN’S EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY INITIATIVE – $394,000 Tennessee school systems are moving to a BYOT (bring your own technology) position. To ensure that the children in residential care are equipped for success in school, funds are needed for a laptop computer for each TBCH child in school and to fund an IT staff position to oversee the residents’ technology needs.
RENOVATIONS AND IMPROVEMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE $1,500,000. TBCH is now at the point where there is a need for renovations and improvement of structures statewide. Funds for these needs will be distributed based on the most critical need.
LONG-TERM FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE – $835,500 To sustain current and new initiatives, TBCH must continue to be intentional, savvy, and creative in developing and cultivating funding sources to fully support its ongoing ministries.
