About This Fund
CFT has established the North Texas Community Response Fund to support community needs in response to COVID-19. Donations to this fund will provide support for organizations that work with people and communities most affected by COVID-19.
Donations will support individuals and families who need access to food and/or healthcare, supplementing lost wages and/or housing costs or support for agencies who work with vulnerable populations such as seniors and/or homeless.
About The Host Organization
With the support and involvement of several well-known Dallas business leaders during the mid-20th century, the Dallas Community Chest Trust Fund was created in July 1953 as a safety net for social-service agencies in Dallas. Those leaders included Dallas attorney Paul Carrington, along with Fred M. Lange, J.L. Latimer, Henry S. Miller, Sr., and Harold F. Volk. Other early leaders were Charles S. Sharp, Russell H. Perry, William H. Seay, Maxwell A. Clampitt and George P. Cullum, Jr.
