A Letter From Our President

March, 4 2019

"Arguably, the most important factor to our collective success is diversity."

Each day, we of the staff and board of Communities Foundation of Texas have the privilege of carrying out our mission to build a thriving community for all in North Texas and beyond. We’ve had an extraordinary year with much to be proud of. Even as we celebrated our 65th year with the opening of an additional office location in Collin County, and the launch of our new legacy society, the Live Oak Society, we recognize that our work has only just begun.

Over the past year, a major theme has been the importance of relationships in our efforts to deepen our impact. We know that you share our passion for making our community strong and vibrant for all, and arguably the most important factor to our collective success is diversity. Diversity in thought, diversity in age, diversity in ethnicity, diversity in geography and beyond. To us, diversity provides equity, fullness, wisdom and richness, and helps create the self-supporting community we all strive for.

This edition of IMPACT is dedicated to this conviction and all the things we are building to deepen community engagement. Please take a moment to read our stories and please give us feedback and your ideas. Further, I hope you’ll take the opportunity to learn more through our redesigned website at CFTexas.org. We will continue our work to champion diversity and will be listening carefully to you regarding the needs of our community so that we can serve you  with distinction.

With gratitude,
Dave Scullin
President and CEO, Communities Foundation of Texas
