Making An Impact Text

Every day in Dallas County, approximately 30 people suffer a heart attack and depend on the seamless delivery of emergency medical services to increase their chances of survival and quality of life. Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of all Americans and current survival rates in Dallas County are lower than the national average. A $3.5 million grant from the W.W. Caruth Jr. Foundation of Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT) to the SouthWest Affiliate of the American Heart Association (AHA) aims to change those statistics. In partnership with the medical community, the collaboration has the power to transform patient care for future heart attack victims in Dallas and to position the county as a national leader in heart attack treatment and survival.  This innovative regional collaboration will work to ensure equipment compatibility, consistent training and uniform protocols for both transporting and treating heart attack patients across the region.

Since its founding in 1953, Communities Foundation of Texas has grown to become one of the nation’s largest community foundations. Through its work, the foundation enhances the experience and impact of charitable giving. It serves as a hub for collaboration between donors, nonprofits and other funding organizations to stimulate creative solutions to key community challenges.

This is accomplished through a variety of donor-advised, designated and discretionary funds, including the W.W. Caruth, Jr. Foundation created by the generosity of Will Caruth.  CFT strives to thoughtfully and effectively support its diverse donors and grantees by providing exemplary service, by demonstrating accountability, and by generating lasting impact in the community.  The foundation professionally manages almost 900 component funds and has awarded over $1 billion in charitable grants.
