Premier Foundation Partners

In order to plan for the future, we need reliable support for TDC. We are lucky to have partnerships with some amazing funders who make it possible to do our work each year.

The Cathay Bank Foundation

The Cathay Bank Foundation aims to enhance the growth and success of communities. TDC receives support under their education grant area, for innovative programs that offer assistance to low- and moderate-income youths to excel in school and prepare for higher education.  We are delighted to have a new partnership with this foundation starting for TDC 2017. Thanks to their support, we will be able to pay the housing costs of 15 scholarship students. Thank you, Cathay Bank! 

Jack Jenkins Debate Opportunity Fund

The Jack Jenkins Debate Opportunity Fund was established in honor of an amazing person who cared deeply about debate. The Fund continues those values by supporting low-income debaters. The Fund has been a supporter of TDC since 2012. We have started a tradition at TDC of, at the end of camp, giving the Jack Jenkins Award to students who have a commitment to helping others experience the best of debate and have a general outlook of love for others, both in debate and in life.

TDC Members

TDC is especially grateful to the donors who made the camp possible in 2016, when it faced a significant budget shortfall.
