Strengthening Collin County through Leadership

November 11, 2019

Collin County Community Leadership Council

CFT recently created a Collin County Community Leadership Council, a group of community leaders who will learn about CFT's services and programs; bring community issues, needs and trends to CFT for discussion; and offer advice and counsel to CFT regarding its strategies for strengthening philanthropy in the region. Council members will not serve in a fiduciary capacity but will be asked to share their perspectives and knowledge of the community in order to help shape CFT's future work in Collin County.
 

Strategic Priorities of the Council:

  1. Build the Fund for Collin County to support community grantmaking
  2. Support community engagement with individuals, families, businesses and nonprofits through CFT's programs, services and convening capabilities
  3. Elevate awareness and focus on community needs
  4. Build the strength of nonprofits 
  5. Build a thriving community for all in Collin County
