TMPAA Charities

The Target Markets Program Administrators Association created TMPAA Charities in 2006 as a vehicle to provide its members the opportunity to share their financial success with others who may be in need of assistance.

Since its inception, TMPAA Charities has provided over $100,000 dollars in grants to organizations selected by Association members, supported the "Packages from Home" initiative that has provided more than 1000 care packages and letters to our men and women serving in the armed forces, aided hundreds of small businesses in the developing world and now in the US through an initial investment in Kiva, and provided scholarships to students pursuing Risk Management/Insurance degrees at select universities.

Currently, TMPAA Charities focuses solely on active duty military and scholarships to support students in Risk Management or Insurance programs. Funds are raised primarily through the Annual TMPAA Charities Golf Tournament and individual member donations.

Donate button TMPAA Charities is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization administered without fees by the Target Markets Program Administrators Association. 

Donations to TMPAA Charities are tax deductible. You will receive a receipt for tax purposes once we process your donation. (TMPAA Charities Tax ID: 20-8824712)

IMG 8719Hello All @Target Markets,

I can’t thank you enough for all the nice things you sent me and my battle buddies here in Iraq. Whenever I feel homesick, I turn to the gifts that you sent to enjoy things we don’t have available here. Thanks again and God Bless you all.

I just wanted to reach out and thank you all so much for providing me with this amazing care package. I was confused when I actually received mail because I hardly ever do so this was a pleasant surprise. Keep doing amazing things for those in the military. I know others will appreciate the gifts too.

TM TroopsDear Packages from Home Team,

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the care package I recently received. The generosity and kindness have not gone unnoticed, and I am deeply appreciative of the effort you put into sending these care packages to those in need. Please know that your gesture has made a significant difference and has brought joy to my life here in Saudi Arabia. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kindness and support. I am truly grateful.

JeQuanThis scholarship motivates me to continue to excel in my studies, serve my community, and successfully complete my degree program. I, too, hope to give back to the students who come after me and allow them the freedom to achieve their goals. I graciously thank you once again for your willingness to invest in me to secure my future.

Not only does a reduction in tuition limit my debt after college but it also gives me more time and effort with Gamma Iota Sigma. This assistance helps me pursue my goals in a career of risk management or insurance. This summer I will continue that pursuit working in New York for BNP Paribas as a risk analyst.
