Support for Israel Relief

Organizations providing relief and aid

More than 1,200 lives have been lost since Israel was attacked on October 7, 2023, with many more wounded, including civilians. Our hearts are heavy for the people of Israel and all impacted by this horrific act of violence. Communities Foundation of Texas condemns acts of violence and hate in all forms. We join in solidarity to condemn this brutal terrorist attack that has caused a humanitarian crisis impacting people of all ages, both abroad and here in our community.

At CFT, our vision is thriving communities for all. Part of this vision includes ensuring that our community members live without fear for their own safety and the safety of their children and loved ones.

Local, national, and international nonprofit organizations are working quickly to offer support and provide aid. CFT leaders have been in close communication with our local funding partners and foundations regarding resources and ways to give.
