Spotlight on TRT's Program Funds
There are many times in our lives when we want to share our simchas, honor the memory of a loved one, and/or acknowledge someone special. A great way to show the love is by making a tax-free donation to one of TRT's special program funds. Each week in this column we will highlight a different program fund with the hope that you will feel inspired to support those who will benefit from the fund. 

This week's spotlight is on the Goldberger Family Fund for Community Engagement. This fund supports the many programs offered without charge to the community.
