Nonprofit Funds

When a tax-exempt nonprofit organization establishes a nonprofit fund at CFT, it can focus on its mission rather than spend time identifying and supervising investment managers. Having a nonprofit fund at CFT also helps nonprofits with gift planning and endowment-building to ensure their long-term financial sustainability.

When nonprofits partner with Communities Foundation of Texas, they gain access to services that might not otherwise be available to them. CFT handles all investment management and the administrative responsibilities related to the fund and also can help your organization develop planned giving programs and assist with investment management and administrative details.
