Katherine “Trinka” Davis Rynne Fund

(a component fund of the Community Foundation of West Georgia)

The Community Foundation of West Georgia is pleased to announce the availability of grant funds from the Katherine Trinka Davis Rynne Fund (TDRF).

The Trinka Davis Fund was established in 2009 to both honor the life work of Ms. Davis and provide a permanent fund to assist veterans and their families. During her lifetime, Ms. Davis was a very successful business woman who owned Trintex Corporation in Bowdon from the early 1970’s.

In 1978, a fire destroyed most of the equipment. Against the advice of her financial advisors, Ms. Davis rebuilt the company and saved over 300 jobs. The company was very successful and became a leader in its industry. She later sold the company to Carlisle Tire and Wheel, Inc. in 2004. Her volunteer interests centered on the blind and she had a great passion for helping wounded veterans and their families. This fund is a legacy that will provide assistance to local veterans and their families indefinitely.

Impact West Georgia offers free, wheel-chair accessible transportation to & from Trinka Davis for local Veterans.

 

Purpose:

The Trinka Davis endowed fund provides grants each year to address the needs of local veterans.

Eligibility:

The total amount of grant funding available for 2019 Trinka Davis grants is $26,000.
