EXPLORE Find your perfect path to making change.

Your passion,
our commitment

At CFT, we believe in helping people maximize their giving
impact. We specialize in connecting donors with vetted nonprofits, creating customized giving plans, and legacy planning. We’re committed to serving as your trusted philanthropic partner.

GiveWisely® — develop a giving path that’s all your own.

Giving may be easy, but it’s not always easy to decide what matters most to you. Our popular, rewarding, and fun GiveWisely® course empowers you to think critically about giving — to discover your core values and gain a clear idea of what you want to support and how best to go about it. You’ll also learn how to powerfully say “yes” or “no,” based on whether an opportunity is aligned with your giving focus. Let us help make giving easier, more effective, and more meaningful to you.

Individual and family sessions are complimentary for CFT fundholders. They are offered virtually or in person, and can be customized to last as little as 45 minutes or expand into a full workshop experience, depending on your goals and focus areas. Not a fundholder? CFT can customize a session for your family, group, or business to help bring more focus and effectiveness to your giving. For more information, contact Elizabeth Liser at 214-750-4234 or click below.
