CFT Community Impact Grants
At CFT we have two focus areas for our discretionary grantmaking:
1) enhancing the economic security of low-income families, and
2) improving high school retention and graduation rates by investing in teachers and school leaders of at-risk middle school youth.
Economic Security of low-income families
