  Online Version

Communities Foundation of Texas is excited to release its 2016 Impact Report. This report is designed to showcase the work CFT in involved in across the community through its discretionary grantmaking. It focuses on CFT's three largest areas of discretionary activity:

  • Community Impact grantmaking (focused on academic success for at-risk middle school youth and economic stability for low-income working families);
  • 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.
