About Us

Tu Luong Medical Mission Foundation (TLF) was established in 1992 by Tan Lam in honoring of his mother Tu and father Luong. 

Our first purpose was to organizes teams of healthcare professionals, students, and other volunteers to travel and provide free medical services to Vietnamese refugees in Southeast Asia. When the last Vietnamese refugee camp closed, TLF reincorporated in Washington to support medical missions and mini medical education.

Conference Tracts
Through the powerful collaboration with grantmakers and nonprofit leaders, our virtual conference will convene high quality presenters to deliver information-filled workshops in five tracks:

Meet the Grantmakers
Meet diverse panel of foundation representatives (family, independent, and corporate) who will present their views on establishing solid relationships with potential funders.  Each will discuss their particular field of expertise with the opportunity for questions by attendees.  This is everything you ever wanted to know about grantmakers—You will learn about types of foundations and strategies to effectively approach these mysterious institutions of funding.  You will learn things that grantmakers hope to find in every effective grant proposal.

Fun Raising and Fund Development
Workshops will include grant writing, capital campaigns, the very popular “Meet the Grantmakers” forum, and much more.

Market, Media, and Technology
These sessions are designed to help organizations communicate effectively with members, donors, and the media to utilize technology as a mean of increase effectiveness.

Nonprofit Collaboration

The goal of nonprofit teams collaboration is to use Microsoft Teams to bring nonprofit organizations together to collaborate and to get more done on a shared project or goal. The benefits of collaboration is that we work effectively together: improve productivity, save time, and accomplish more. Collaboration breaks down silos and bring our teams together, keeping everyone in the loop and ensuring everyone has a voice.

Features of Microsoft Teams:
Share files, co-author and edit content simultaneously, automatically save everyone’s changes, communicate in real-time, video conference, ideate in the Whiteboard app, work together in channels, and more.

Five Ways to Collaborate with Other Nonprofit Organizations
Summarized and adapted from “Five Ways To Partner With Another Nonprofit For Marketing Wins” By Gloria Horsley, Forbes Nonprofit Council.”

1. Webinars
Nonprofits can use Microsoft Teams to host live webinar and collaborate on specific topics. For example, nonprofits can work with another nonprofit on a holiday grief topic. By expanding the number of experts we had on the subject across many organizations, it promoted our thought leadership on an important topic for the holidays and showed the value each of us offers. The webinars feature valuable tips and opportunities for interaction.

2. Repurposed Content
Nonprofits can use Microsoft Teams to share resources, to trade existing content, and repurpose it for each other's blogs or social media profiles. This saves considerable time and money by using what is available and getting more mileage out of the valuable information.

3. Virtual Conferences and Trade Shows
We can use Microsoft Teams for virtual conference and trade show. The traditional trade show and participation cost so much more but also offer an opportunity to engage with people face to face and learn from others while generating a thought leadership position. Microsoft Teams can be use to host virtual conferences and trade shows for a fraction of the cost of the traditional events while reaching out to larger audiences.

4. Virtual Events and Fundraisers
Traditional conferences, events and fundraisers can become expensive but are necessary to raise money and awareness. Microsoft Teams can be used to reach donor that cannot be able to participate in person.

5. Skill Sets
Microsoft Teams can be used to collaborate and to share our skill sets. For example, one nonprofit has the technology skills but lack of contain, and other nonprofits have contents but lack of technological skills. One will get help with technology, other will get help building with content library. Nonprofits can also skills and experiences around fundraising, conferences, event planning, etc. This creates a seamless process and provides access to a comprehensive set of skills for between nonprofit organizations.

Things To Remember
One of the most important lessons we have learned from partnering with another nonprofit is to regularly communicate about what each organization is doing to see if it creates any mutual marketing/fundraising wins. Also, regular planning sessions on a quarterly basis have helped us disseminate our goals, find shared interests, decide on tactics we plan to implement together and agree on messaging and key responsibilities. By doing so, you'll be able to get the most from these nonprofit partnerships for the benefit of all involved. Again, Microsoft Teams will be able to help us with this.
