CT Strategies’ community engagement centers around expanding opportunities for underrepresented communities through education and financial assistance.
We believe that investing in the livelihood of marginalized communities and increasing access to high-quality educational opportunities as it plays a vital role in developing leaders that will shape the future of international trade.
Women in International Trade
CT Strategies is a proud supporter of women in trade, primarily through its work and collaboration with the Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT). The Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT), based in Washington, DC, works to promote the professional development of women in international trade and business and to raise public awareness of the importance of international trade to economic development. WIIT does this through professional development opportunities, educational offerings, and social activities for professional networking.

We are proud to work with the talented faculty and students at San Miguel School.

CTS Future Trade Leader Fellowship Program
CT Strategies believes that secure, efficient global trade and travel contribute to economic prosperity and cultural diversity. Through our fellowship program, we seek to invest in the next generation of trade leaders who share these values. The CT Strategies Future Trade Leaders Fellowship supports the education and professional development of the next generation of women in international trade. Fellows receive funding for undergraduate studies, mentorship opportunities, and a paid summer internship at CT Strategies. We encourage applications from groups historically underrepresented in international trade and those with financial need.
Roger L. von Amelunxen Foundation
The Roger L. Von Amelunxen Foundation works to provide financial assistance to U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees and their immediate families nationwide. Named after Roger L. Von Amelunxen - a Customs Patrol Officer who was slain in 1980, the foundation recognizes and amplifies the legacy of the heroes that give their lives in the line-of-duty. We support the idea that families experiencing tragedy should not have the added burden of financial distress while awaiting government benefits.
CT Strategies is the proud host the Annual RLVAF Charity Golf Event. Over the years we have supported the foundation in raising over $4.7 million to fund assistance grants for families and scholarships for children of CBP employees.
