Corporate Advised Funds - An Efficient Way to Give

Creating a corporate advised fund at the Community Foundations is a simple and efficient way for your company to give to the causes and communities that matter most to you - locally or nationally.  We offer visibility to your company on our "Corporate Partners" web page.  We will work with your company to facilitate a corporate philanthropy program that makes a positive impact and allows you to focus on your business.
