History of CFT4B (formerly EFNT)

EFNT expands into CFT for Business in 2017

CFT is incredibly proud of the programs and services that Entrepreneurs for North Texas, a program of Communities Foundation of Texas, provided over the last 17 years, which have helped make it easy for companies in our community to do good.

Since its inception, EFNT has touched more than 13,000 volunteers from more than 100 companies, who have collectively given 45,000 hours of volunteer service. The impact has been incredible! In November 2017, EFNT was sunset, and CFT officially launched CFT for Business.

Goals of CFT for Business:
  • Work with companies of all sizes to build a vibrant community of engaged business leaders and thriving businesses
  • Grow giving through charitable contributions and volunteer service to nonprofit organizations
  • Enhance employee engagement through valuable opportunities to network and support nonprofits making our community a better place to live, work and play
  • Help local companies achieve their charitable and business goals

The Fallen Family Fund at CFT supports Freedom Day


“It’s been the greatest gift,” said Nancy. “I feel like what granddad gave us was an opportunity – an opportunity to make a difference and to explore within ourselves something he had already figured out: lifting up the people around you is what matters most. He knew that the fund could bring good to others but also to us as we practiced generosity together.”

Throughout 2018, 1st Global continued to live out one of the company’s guiding principles: aspiring to servant leadership through community outreach and volunteerism. Supported by a now three-year partnership with Communities Foundation of Texas for Business, 1st Global has annually increased its social responsibility efforts in the Dallas community.

Partnering with local companies like NETSCOUT to help business philanthropy thrive

When NETSCOUT needed a partner to implement and launch their local charitable grant program, they turned to Communities Foundation of Texas.


This past fall, NETSCOUT established a charitable fund known as a business-advised fund with CFT. Next, CFT helped NETSCOUT engage their employees in learning how nonprofits are addressing important issues in the community and choosing focus areas for the company’s grant funds.

17th annual volunteer day honors 9/11 through joint service


Honoring the lives lost and forever changed on 9/11/01, CFT for Business presented its 17th annual Freedom Day, a community service event last September that was part of CFT’s North Texas Giving Day. In recognition of the courage and bravery of the men and women who fight for our freedom and those first responders who protect us, we dedicated this day of service to them by supporting local organizations that provide essential services to veterans, first responders and their families.
