Corporate Giving 

We offer custom services to help your company plan, govern and operate your community philanthropy.

Giving Back is Good for Business

Your business has a vested interest in the health and vitality of our region. Partnering with The Community Foundation is a convenient way to maximize impact for the people and communities you serve and generate a return on community investment. With deep grantmaking expertise and community knowledge, we can help you develop corporate giving programs, manage charitable funds, engage employees, or collaborate within our community.

We provide a simple and yet powerful approach to giving with a variety of tools tailored to meet your company’s needs. Together, the Community Foundation and area businesses create full-circle partnerships that give back to our local communities and improve the region we call home.

How It Works:
