THE IRIS SOCIETY

The Iris Society honors donors who contribute $1,000 or more within the calendar year or include TJC in their estate plans. Like irises, we are known for our resilience. Like so many of our clients, partners, and community members, we are faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles every day. We just keep working, and we could not do so without our supporters. Their generosity and compassion allow us the opportunity to fight for the dignity, independence, and opportunity for all Tennesseans.
