Favorite Aspect of CFT
"I was drawn to CFT because of its mission — to identify creative solutions to key challenges in our community — and it has been the mission and the amazing team of professionals that drive me to do my best every day. My favorite part of North Texas Giving Day is the sense of community the day inspires, bringing together nonprofit organizations from diverse communities and causes across a 20-county footprint."
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
