70 Years of Impact


As we reflect on our 70th anniversary year, we look with hope to the future, while giving gratitude to those who have made our past and present impact possible. Over our history, more than $2.5 billion in cumulative grants have been made to nonprofits through CFT.

With all we do, we seek to achieve our vision of a thriving community for all. We work to make our mission and vision a reality by growing community giving, expanding community impact, and advancing community equity.

Because of Givers like you — and through the outstanding work of our staff and Board — CFT continues to grow in giving and in impact. 2023 was another impactful year for both gifts and grants, with $152 million in gifts received and $154 million in grants distributed to nonprofits.

In September, CFT’s 15th annual North Texas Giving Day raised $63.9 million for more than 3,200 local nonprofits, which brings the total dollars raised through North Texas Giving Day to more than $566 million.

This year’s annual report features a timeline look back at CFT’s historic
growth in giving and uplifts the passions of our partners, showcasing a few recent collaborative efforts with our charitable fund holders, nonprofit grantees, and Educate Texas initiative. We thank you for your support and welcome your continued partnership in the decades ahead.
