What is Central Texas Education Funders?
Central Texas Education Funders (CTEF), formed in 2008, is a membership group comprised of 75 funding agencies in and around Austin who focus on education as one of their grantmaking priorities. The mission of the Central Texas Education Funders is to improve the effectiveness of the education sector by providing opportunities for collaborative learning, funding, and advocacy among central Texas education funders. Because of CTEF, grantmakers can make more informed and coordinated decisions about funding opportunities and the ways in which they can foster change in the community, both individually and collaboratively. As a result of this collaboration
- effective programs are sustained and expanded,
- duplicative services are reduced or eliminated,
- innovations addressing unmet needs are encouraged, and
- grantmaking and evaluation processes are more efficient and transparent.
Although all CTEF members have their own unique missions, we believe we can collaborate to optimize our impact in our community. For more information about CTEF, or to become a member, please contact us.
