CAP® Study Group

The Dallas Foundation and Communities Foundation of Texas are proud to sponsor the 2023 Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) Study Group Program

The CAP Study Group for 2023 is at capacity at this time. If you would like to be added to the waitlist for 2023 or for the new group forming in 2024, please email Kim Montez at

The Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) Study Group Program provides a collaborative forum that brings professional advisors and nonprofit leaders around the same table to learn about charitable planning and to build lasting professional networks. For nearly a decade this peer-learning experience has empowered participants to be more connected to philanthropic resources and help their clients and donors maximize their community impact.

In partnership with The American College and C3 Financial Partners, Communities Foundation of Texas and The Dallas Foundation administer the program in North Texas, which works to equip financial planners, CPAs, estate attorneys, insurance professionals, and nonprofit development and gift planners with philanthropic planning concepts, while enhancing their listening skills and building a strong network throughout our region.
