Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation Fund at CFT
In corporate philanthropy, Neiman Marcus has an ear for youth arts education. Research has shown that students receiving arts training graduate at higher rates, score higher on the SAT, are better creative problem solvers and become engaged civic leaders. The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation Fund at CFT was established to strategically invest in organizations providing support for arts education for underserved youth.In 2014, one of the grantees supported was the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Young Strings program, which discovers and develops the talent of young African American and Latino string players. CFT is proud to partner with Neiman Marcus through various funds for their corporate philanthropy. To date, Neiman Marcus has provided over $10 million in grants for disaster relief, youth arts education, associate financial assistance and other charitable efforts. One of Neiman Marcus’ core organizational values is “Be All Heart.” By partnering with CFT, they have ensured that their philanthropic heart will continue to beat stronger than ever.
