CFT Expanding for Business!

August 4, 2016

Communities Foundation of Texas has enjoyed a strong partnership with the business community in Dallas and in our region for many years.  The success of the Entrepreneurs for North Texas program of CFT is a striking example of this significant relationship with companies wanting to make a beneficial impact within their communities. Operating as an outsourced community affairs department, Entrepreneurs For North Texas has provided its member companies with the due-diligence and resources to assist them in developing a company culture of good corporate citizenship in a way that is good for their business for over 15 years.  Through these important relationships in the business community, the demand for additional business services has led the leadership of CFT to begin an expansion of these core business services for small, mid-size and large companies serving the North Texas communities.

With the expanded business services, Communities Foundation of Texas can assist your business clients and your companies with starting or growing your company’s giving program.

Eliminate the administrative burden of a corporate foundation by creating a Business Advised Charitable Fund at CFT.  We will support your company’s goals with a full spectrum of services including grant making, due diligence, site visits and community updates.  Based upon what is important to the company, CFT will research community needs and assist with formulating strategies to respond to these needs.

Corporate scholarship funds can support worthy students’ educational pursuits in any field of study or your company may choose a field to encourage study related to your business. Our newly devised Corporate Philanthropy Institute engages business leaders and their employees in developing a customized approach to their business philanthropy.

As CFT seeks to expand its reach from individuals and families to the vibrant business landscape in North Texas, let us continue to be a resource for you and your business clients. Please contact me at or 214-750-4247. We look forward to working with you.
