#DoTheGood in April

Join CFT for Business for National Volunteer Month 2023

Communities Foundation of Texas made a concerted effort to recognize National Volunteer Month in 2022, activating 2,300 volunteers to #DoTheGood in our community through more than 11,000 volunteer hours. CFT will again work to engage the North Texas community in a celebration of volunteer service during National Volunteer Month in April. This second annual communitywide effort to #DoTheGood invites businesses, community leaders, nonprofits, individuals, and families to share their time and talent with organizations in need across North Texas.

Emerging Leaders in Philanthropy members and alumni volunteered with CFT team members at Hunger Busters during National Volunteer Month ’22.

CFT for Business will host events designed for member companies and employees. Weekly volunteer projects and learning opportunities will be offered throughout the month of April.

Volunteer opportunities will align with CFT’s four intersectional grantmaking priorities: Health, Wealth, Living, and Learning. At CFT, we see these focus areas as pillars in building a thriving community. Each week will feature a different pillar, with multiple service opportunities to choose from.

In 2022, more than 400 volunteers from 40 different CFT for Business member companies completed over 2,100 hours of service with 26 nonprofit partners.

Additionally, a variety of publicly available volunteer projects will be featured throughout the month in partnership with locally based volunteer management platform, VOMO, and The Dallas Morning News’ cause marketing initiative, FWD>DFW.

Volunteers can visit here and search for projects by issue area, by date, or by “anytime” projects featuring organizations in need of ongoing volunteer support. Last year, there were more than 150 projects to choose from.

During this month-long initiative, local businesses can choose to sponsor an entire week’s worth of volunteer events or a single event. Sponsorship opportunities range from $2,500 to $25,000. Companies can also join CFT for Business as a Business Impact Network member to participate in custom opportunities to engage employees. We hope that you, your family, and your company will consider joining us this year in whatever capacity you can.

We’re striving to make North Texas one of the most business-engaged communities in the country, and to achieve this, we need to partner with companies of all sizes.

Have you checked out our annual Engagement Guide? This resource is a comprehensive guide to help businesses and individuals plan their year-round partnerships with CFT. It outlines opportunities to partner through sponsorship or support of a communitywide event, volunteer opportunity, or other program in 2023. The Engagement Guide also provides a chance to identify sponsorship opportunities that align with your or your company’s values and the audiences that matter most to you.

The information will be useful as you plan for the year ahead. We look forward to discussing how we can help further your charitable goals while making a difference in our community.
