TIC 1978 Society

We are proud to recognize the outstanding support of our loyal friends.

The 1978 Society

Honoring the year Talking Information Center was founded, the 1978 Society provides special recognition to listeners, volunteers and friends who give $1,978 or more during the year to the Annual Giving Program funds. The year 1978 was chosen to mark the founding of Talking Information Center and to recognize the uncommon loyalty, sacrifice, and commitment of volunteers and friends to the Center since our founding.

Donors who contribute $1,978 or more annually are members of the 1978 Society. This amount includes annual cumulative giving for TIC’s fiscal year ending June 30.

As a member of the 1978 Society, you receive:

  • Invitation to the Executive Director’s Reception for Leadership Donors every June 19 – our founding day.
  • Newsletter with insider updates from Executive Director Dunbar three times a year
