Each year TFA donates a portion of all membership dues to a charitable organization. Our goal is to support charities that have a connection to health and fitness, and we hope our members can be proud that a portion of their dues are going to support great organizations.

2021 Giving: Mission First (Jackson, Mississippi)

For more than 20 years, Mission First has served areas of need in the inner city. The scope of services offered by the organization includes a medical clinic, dental clinic, and a legal aid office. However, it was the Sports Ministry that resonated with TFA. The ministry partners with New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis and focuses on developing youth through coaching, tutoring and Bible study.

We worked with their Sports Ministry Director to identify some of their current equipment needs for the after-school and summer sports programs. In December, 2021, TFA purchased and donated approximately $9,000 of new equipment, including:

  • Volleyball stands, bases, and nets
  • NCAA basketballs (girls and boys sizes)
  • Soccer balls
  • Volleyballs
  • Badminton sets
  • Baseballs, bases, and bats
  • Horseshoe sets
  • Jump ropes
  • Hula hoops
  • Flag football sets
  • Tennis balls and racquets
  • Other accessories and backyard games
