In 2003, The Banks Foundation began holding annual golf tournaments to raise money for families who are moving from welfare to work and from public housing to private homeownership. The board approved an expansion of the Tournament to support other Triangle charities in 2013 and renamed the tournament as the Triangle Golf Challenge. This is an all-inclusive event with an all day golf outing to benefit the selected Triangle charities.
The Banks Foundation was formed on November 17, 2000, for the purpose of assisting families who are moving from welfare to work and from public housing to private homeownership. Over the years, the Foundation has provided down payment assistance to families who have qualified to purchase their first home.
The Triangle Aphasia Project (TAP) is literally a dream come true. A dream can be grandiose, colorful, and complete. The work needed to bring that dream to fruition is anything but,…and it takes more than one dreamer! TAP Unlimited’s story is not a tale of a person, but about how a group of individuals saw a need, shared a passion, and committed to the work.
Aphasia is a communication disorder that does NOT impact intelligence or memory, rather a person’s ability to use language in the forms of speech, writing, reading and listening. Imagine knowing exactly what you want to say without being able to get it out or seeing letters on a page that you can’t put together as recognizable words or sentences.
Aphasia results primarily from stroke, brain injury or tumor, and less frequently as part of a progressive disease.
