Community Impact Grants
Community Impact Grants are intended to make a strong impact on the community, and grant recipients are determined by our Board of Trustees and are currently focused in two areas:
- Enhancing the economic security of the working poor, and
- Improving high school retention and graduation rates by investing in teachers and school leaders who serve at-risk middle school youth.

- W.W. Caruth, Jr. Foundation grantmaking (focused on public safety, education, and medical and scientific research); and
- Educate Texas grantmaking and program work (focused on a statewide public–private education initiative operating as a program of CFT).
The report provides detailed insight into the activities, the hoped-for impact, and the results in each of these areas.
