Favorite Aspect of CFT
"The privilege of working with our CFT fund holders to gain more clarity on what truly lights them up in the world- and then helping them translate that powerfully into their charitable giving."
“And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
