The Tomahawks are committed to helping improve the Greater Johnstown community through the JTF, which not only provides its unique resources and financial support to local charitable organizations, but also implements its own fundraisers, community programs, 50/50 Raffles, and special charity events. Led by a dedicated community Board of Directors and administered by the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies (CFA), the JTF continues to develop numerous programs and partnerships that target those who most need support.
“It’s been wonderful to see the Tomahawks enthusiasm to give back to our community,” said CFA President Mike Kane. “The organization made a significant economical impact in their first season. The staff, coaches, and players’ commitment to the region has been tremendous.”
