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.
