Chartered in 1926, TCF has both navigated the most challenging financial investment periods and made sound, long-term investment decisions, providing steady growth and security for churches in the Diocese of Pennsylvania.
While we are an organization with a 94-year history and a wealth of knowledge in the world of investment, odds are that if you talk to someone about TCF they will be on a first-name basis with each of us here in Philadelphia.
"When we were beginning our relationship, we had to get a cashier’s check from Vanguard to start our TCF fund," explains The Rev. Dr. Mike Sowards, who was in a time crunch. "So after he tried to talk me through it on the phone, Ryan hopped in his car, drove from Norristown to Collegeville and picked up our check so that we could start our account."
It was important to us,
so it was important to TCF. The Rev. Dr. Mike Sowards
At TCF, we believe in the mission, vision and values of our client churches and organizations, and we invest with those values in mind. We provide a secure, strong investment platform through our collective investing power, providing an investment vehicle with a greater opportunity for growth.
Keeping a Focus on What's Important
We know that a church is not merely a building, a property, a worship service. Each church is part of its community, making a difference in the lives of people both in the pews and outside of the walls. This year, with lockdowns and restrictions on gatherings, has shined a brighter light on this reality.
By providing financial stability and confidence, TCF allows churches to maintain focus on keeping connected:: finding new ways to worship, ways to serve, and new ways to be the church.
