Help us Champion Collin County!

 

The Fund for Collin County was established with a commitment of $500,000 of seed funding by Communities Foundation of Texas to provide support for nonprofit organizations addressing the most pressing needs and promising opportunities for the communities of Collin County.


We are excited to announce that as of February 2019, the $1 million initial fundraising goal for the Fund for Collin County has been met and the first grants from the Fund have been announced!  The first two grants in the amount of $20,000 each will support the work of CASA of Collin County and ManeGait Therapeutic Horsemanship. 

To maintain the vitality of Collin County's growing communities, CFT is looking for committed, community-minded, forward-thinking individuals and businesses to join us in growing the Fund for Collin County!  Building this fund together will help ensure there will always be dedicated charitable resources to provide support and funding for our most vulnerable citizens for generations to come.

Since 2006, CFT has made more than 4,000 grants to 900+ organizations in Collin County, totaling more than $51 million. Collin County, along with all of North Texas, has always been extremely generous. On North Texas Giving Day 2018, more than 20, 767 gifts were made from Collin County residents totaling $5.1 million. We each have our favorite nonprofits that we invest in and support today, and we can also achieve incredible impact for our community when we pool our resources together and invest in the future.

Help us continue to meet the challenges of our growing communities by joining us to invest in Collin County.
