Tower Family Foundation Welcomes All Contributions – Large or Small
The Tower Family Foundation has been established to help provide financial assistance to family members of a severely injured, permanently disabled, or deceased tower worker injured or killed in an accident stemming from working at heights on communication structures or other on-the-job-related activities that tower workers are involved in on a daily basis. The intent of the donation is to provide a funding “bridge” to the affected families to help pay for immediate needs and help defray other related costs that families experience in a post-accident or fatality situation.
Thanks to the generous support of companies and individuals in the diverse tower and communications infrastructure construction, service and maintenance industries, the Tower Family Foundation has awarded over $1.2 million to date in direct financial assistance and scholarships to affected families.
We encourage you to consider donating to the Tower Family Foundation to help support our mission of Providing Support by Standing Together. All contributions to the Tower Family Foundation are granted directly to eligible tower workers and/or their families to help assist them in paying for their immediate needs and related costs that occur in the aftermath of a post-accident or fatality situation. VRS P.C., an independent certified public accounting firm, has calculated that over 97 cents of every dollar donated to the Tower Family Foundation goes directly to eligible benefactors.
