Please write "The Chuck Reed Fund" on the memo line of your check to ensure proper credit to the fund, thanks.
The Chuck Reed Fund is intended as a living memorial
to my friend Chuck who lost his battle with cystic fibrosis when we were
in the 5th grade. My goal is to provide sufficient long-term funding to
purchase and donate a block of season tickets to the Bristol Motor Speedway
to a well-known charity benefiting children with life-threatening illness.
The "well-known charity" will be the Make-A-Wish Foundation of East
Tennessee who receive four spring Bristol tickets every year.
The Chuck Reed Fund is a Donor-Advised Fund managed by the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga
and is set up to purchase both the spring and the fall tickets (in other
words, "The Night Race at Bristol") for donations in perpetuity.
Bristol Motor Speedway: 36 full weekend tickets
(Note: I only get an updated donor list every quarter so there's a long lag time between donation and listing, but the extremely low, almost nonexistent, administrative overhead for this fund allows more dollars to be allocated to the intended use. Thanks.)
