With TCF’s help, the Todd Barajas Legacy Fund was created. “While we have both been involved in charitable giving and volunteerism for many years, nothing could have brought us more peace and comfort than honoring our son in this way,” said Don and Joanne. “We look forward to working with The Community Foundation in the coming years to continue Todd’s legacy.”
