The Tom McGuire Memorial Fund at Triangle Community Foundation

| by Bert Armstrong

Throughout 2019, we are seeking intentional ways to say thank you to the amazing clients, leaders, colleagues, and friends who have partnered with us, taught us, guided us, hired us, agreed with us, challenged us, and stuck with us along this 15-year journey of helping build a strong, vibrant nonprofit community. The leadership and support you offer as staff, board members, donors, volunteers, and advocates are inspiring reminders of what can be accomplished when we work together for the common benefit of our community. 

No one did more, or celebrated more joyfully, than our friend and co-founder Tom McGuire. Tom’s enthusiastic belief in philanthropy’s unique role in strengthening communities remains the guiding principle of our firm.  At our 15th anniversary celebration in April, we announced the establishment of the Tom McGuire Memorial Fund at Triangle Community Foundation. This Fund is our way of honoring Tom’s legacy of support for the people and programs that will make our community better, especially through arts and education. As many of you know, these were two of Tom’s true passions. 

We are humbled that so many of you have expressed an interest in contributing to this Fund in celebration of Tom. Triangle Community Foundation will administer the Fund in support of its focus areas of youth literacy and cultural arts. There are several ways you can amplify the Fund’s impact with your contribution.

Our Armstrong McGuire team has been heartened by the many kind words and expressions of appreciation for Tom’s legacy and for our 15 years of service to North Carolina’s nonprofit and philanthropic sectors.  Thanks once again to each of you for the many ways you serve and support our community!  Together we can #DoGreatThings!
