The Community Foundation can assist your business to develop and administer a strategic giving plan that aligns with your corporate priorities and creates a measurable impact in our community. Companies can outsource their entire charitable giving program, or a particular part of it to Community Foundation for expert management and maximum impact.

Businesses can support the work of the Foundation generally by joining our Community Partners program for as little as $1,000 per year.

Or, you can make a bigger investment by establishing a named Business Advised or Community Fund with a commitment of $10,000 or more. This allows you to create a visible and permanent vehicle for your corporate giving.

With a Business Advised Fund, you pick what charity(ies) your fund will grant to each year; or you can choose to work with our grant team to fund local community projects that have been vetted by our experienced grant review team.

We are committed to making it as easy as possible for local businesses to create Business Advised Funds.

To explore how we can help your company carry out your philanthropic efforts, call us at 613.546.9696.
