The Tippah County TARGET (Tippah and Ripley Growing Excellent Together) Endowment Fund was established in 1999 through a partnership with CREATE Foundation.  This fund provides a vehicle for individuals to invest in their community and help improve the quality of life.  The local advisory committee is responsible for the grantmaking process and recommends how the funds are used for the community.

Currently the board is in the process of reorganizing and expanding our advisory committee and setting some new goals for the year. We will strive to continue to grow our endowment fund for the betterment of Tippah County.
