Help us Champion Collin County!


The Fund for Collin County was established with a commitment of $500,000 of seed funding by Communities Foundation of Texas to provide support for nonprofit organizations addressing the most pressing needs and promising opportunities for the communities of Collin County.

To maintain the vitality of Collin County’s growing communities, CFT is looking for committed, community-minded, forward-thinking individuals and businesses to help grow this new $500,000 investment in Collin County to well over $1 million. Building this fund together will help ensure there will always be dedicated charitable resources to provide support and funding for our most vulnerable citizens for generations to come.

In the past 11 years alone, CFT has made more than 3,000 grants to organizations in Collin County, totaling more than $43 million. Collin County, along with all of North Texas, has always been extremely generous. On North Texas Giving Day 2017, more than 19,000 gifts were made from Collin County residents totaling more than $8.4 million. We each have our favorite nonprofits that we invest in and support today, and we can also achieve incredible impact for our community when we pool our resources together and invest in the future.

Help us meet the challenge by joining us to invest in Collin County.
