Fund Investment Strategy

Communities Foundation of Texas’ investment strategies are designed for different levels of risk tolerance and time horizons, so that CFT can meet each donor’s unique philanthropic objectives.


CFT offers an array of investment options consisting of a broadly diversified mix of active and passively managed assets:

  • Balanced
  • Growth
  • Income
  • Short-Term
  • Social Impact
  • Endowment
If a donor-advised fund established at CFT has an asset balance of more than $1 million, the donor may request an external manager, subject to CFT’s Investment Committee approval.
