Throughout the year, we host engaging lectures, dynamic panels and seasoned experts from around the country who provide fresh insight on strategies to work with high net worth individuals and their families on how to maximize their charitable giving.

Each year, we have two events specifically for professional advisors:

  • Professional advisor seminar, co-hosted by SMU

  • Advisory council breakfast

We also encourage advisors to attend any of our community events or cause-minded conversations that are held throughout the year.
I think Communities Foundation of Texas is a really great resource, and more people should know about CFT and utilize their services." — Jerri Hammer, Armanino, L.L.P partner and Dallas CPA Society member
