Ben Franklin Club


Monthly Giving Made Easy

The Ben Franklin Club allows you to contribute to TFAS student scholarships in small installments. These recurring gifts can truly make the difference and help us share our message of freedom with tomorrow’s leaders.

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” – Ben Franklin

Members of the Ben Franklin Club can donate to TFAS, either by an automatic draft from a checking account or by charges to their credit cards.

The program offers you many benefits:

  • Your convenience: As a Ben Franklin Club member your monthly tax-deductible donations will be processed automatically – with no extra effort on your part.
  • You have control: You can decide how much per month you’d like to donate. You can stop the donations at any time and you can suspend a donation for a certain month (or months) at any time.

Any amount counts. All of these contributions are tax-deductible and you’ll receive an annual accounting and receipt of your giving at the end of the year.

Remember, your monthly contribution of $5 or $10 or $20 today will help us provide scholarship support to students who could not otherwise afford to come to our program. Don’t miss the opportunity to give a deserving student the experience and education of a lifetime.


Visit our Donation Form and select  “monthly”  option to make your gift recurring. You can also join by contacting Chief Development Officer Matt Bagnoli at 202-986-0384 or
