CONTEXT SUMMITS SUPPORTS CAPITAL FOR KIDS

As Context Summits and its participants set sights on Austin, TX, we want to take a minute to call to attention Capital for Kids, our official charity partner for Context Summits Texas 2017.

Founded in 2005, Capital for Kids is a Texas-based network of individuals and organizations dedicated to the belief that each child deserves a chance for success. Through their partnerships with sponsors and grant recipients, Capital for Kids has raised over $12 million to support North Texas organizations that educate, protect and encourage at-risk children.

To further these efforts, and through our continued commitment to supporting children in need, Context Summits is pleased to make a $15,000 donation to Capital for Kids. In addition, we are putting up for auction one 2018 Miami manager package (valued at more than $10,000) at the upcoming Capital for Kids annual event on November, 16th in Dallas.

We hope our friends and partners throughout the alternative asset management industry will join us in supporting this important cause. For more information, please visit http://capitalforkids.org/

We look forward to seeing you in Texas, �
Mark Salameh
CEO, Context Summits

The SM Wright Foundation has been a CFK grant recipient since 2010. We are grateful for their programs to make sure all children have a bed to lay their heads !!
Their mission is to provide support and stability to inner-city, underprivileged children and less fortunate families through hunger relief, educational support, health, social service assistance and economic empowerment. Their goal is to move these families from a position of dependency to self-sufficiency and to restore stability to families and the community.
