Why Corporate Philanthropy? 

There are many reasons corporate philanthropy and giving back are beneficial for your organization and the community. From employee engagement and recruitment, to increased brand awareness, to increased community networks, corporate philanthropy offers many benefits to you and your community. 

“Philanthropy means supporting our community. We’ve always felt it is the right thing to do. Our funds through the Community Foundation make it much easier for us to manage.”

The Local Advantage 

We can meet with your team to facilitate discussions and design a program that fits your philanthropic philosophy, values and goals. Through our resources, availability, and local expertise, we can help you establish a legacy of corporate giving. 

Corporate Giving Options 

There are two primary service options offered by the Community Foundation for corporate philanthropy: 

Corporate Donor-Advised Fund 

Allows you and your employees to remain actively involved in making grant recommendations to causes you care about whenever it is convenient. Grants can be made to local, national and international organizations. 

Corporate Donor-Advised Fund with Competitive Grantmaking Program

This is a more robust charitable giving option that allows you to fund local programs or projects through a grant application process. We offer a dedicated Community Foundation team to provide professional guidance and administrative oversight that includes a wide range of services from reviewing grant requests to sending award letters to overseeing grantee accountability.
