Corporate Giving Network

A professional network of business associates within the Greater Huntsville area


The Corporate Giving Network is a professional network of business associates who engage in corporate philanthropy, corporate social responsibility, and/or community relations.

The Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville facilitates this effort with the purpose of growing generosity in our region by inspiring and supporting corporations in their philanthropic efforts. 


The Corporate Giving Network meets on the third Thursday in February, May, August, and November from 8:00 - 9:30am to provide an opportunity for business associates to connect with peers and to learn how other local companies utilize their charitable giving programs.

Locations and topics change each quarter - with additional networking events and activities throughout the year.

After spending the last 17 years in nonprofit management, I can tell you that the Community Foundation's Corporate Giving Network is the secret sauce for corporate giving.
