Where Giving Grows

Martha Jackson, GiveWisely Graduate and CFT Fund Holder

On the 10th anniversary of her nephew’s passing, Martha found a way to honor him. She set up a donor-advised fund through CFT to help children and youth develop self confidence through art and athletics. But she didn’t stop there. After taking CFT’s GiveWisely class and visiting Family Gateway, which supports homeless families, Martha was inspired to roll up her sleeves and volunteer.

She started helping with the after-school program at Family Gateway, and after learning more from the children about other programs they love, she became a sponsor of Kids’ University and Camp Bravo!, summer camps at Rainbow Days. Now she has included CFT in her estate plan, where her generosity—and the children who benefit from it—can continue to thrive beyond her lifetime.
