At Communities Foundation of Texas, we take care of businesses, especially those that take care of their communities.

CFT for Business provides expertise and resources to help your business develop and amplify a culture of good corporate citizenship.

We partner with companies of all sizes and offer a wide range of philanthropic services to help start or grow a company’s giving and community engagement program, guiding them through their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) goals while aligning with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

We believe in thriving teams that create thriving cultures to ensure a thriving future for all. Our Be In Good Company program recognizes companies who meet these pillars of excellence and make a difference in our community.
