Giving Back

Though we thrive on helping our clients achieve financial freedom, we know that true wealth is represented by more than just dollars and cents. We believe that giving to those in need is as important as saving for a rainy day, and we are passionate about contributing our time and resources to several causes that benefit many worthy charities. We are grateful and blessed to be a part of the Hampton Roads community, especially our home city of Chesapeake, and are deeply invested in giving back to the town which has given us so much.

Some of the organizations we are proud to support are:


Chesapeake Rotary Club

Robin Tull has been a dedicated Rotarian for more than twenty-five years, participating in many of their community improvement projects including “Paint Your Heart Out Chesapeake” (PYHOC) and “Coats for Kids.” The Rotarian motto is “service above self,” and this professional networking group prioritizes its humanitarian contributions on both a local and international level. For several years TFG has also been a proud sponsor of another popular Rotary event, the annual Chesapeake Wine Festival. This highly successful fundraiser has donated over a million dollars to many local charities.


Chesapeake Regional Healthcare

Dependable medical services are so important to any community, and Robin Tull has dedicated many years of support towards this independent health care system. He has served in many roles for the hospital, including on the Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation Board of Directors, and helping to raise funds through their Annual Gala. He currently sits on the Chesapeake Hospital Authority board, helping to ensure that the hospital remains focused on providing services the community wants and values. The TFG team also supports the annual Bra-ha-ha events, which raises funds for breast cancer research and awareness.



Along with healthcare, ensuring that the next generation has access to quality education is a core passion of the TFG team. Robin Tull has served on the Alumni Board of Directors for his alma mater, Oral Roberts University, and now also serves as a trustee of the school. He has also served as a board member for Atlantic Shores Christian School in Chesapeake, where Philip Tull also contributes his time to coach the Boys Varsity Soccer Team.
