CFT is committed to increasing
access to education and success for all Texas students.

Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT) dedicates a significant portion of grantmaking to support local and statewide education initiatives. As part of our commitment to increase postsecondary access and success, we manage more than 60 scholarship funds that support deserving students in North Texas and beyond.

In our 2018 scholarship cycle, in partnership with our generous donors, we awarded approximately $1.1 million to support students working to reach their full potential in high schools, colleges and universities, and professional and continuing education programs across the country.
