Corporate Giving Funds at the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville are a strategic way to maximize your company’s investment in our community.
Corporate Giving Funds provide a convenient, flexible way for your business to show it cares about its local community and to build awareness about community needs.
This type of fund can also strengthen employees’ relationships with one another and within the community by providing an enriching, shared-giving experience. Many companies use Corporate Giving Funds to help foster a “culture of giving” within their organizations by encouraging employees not only to give financially, but also to get involved in learning more about how nonprofits are benefiting the community where they live and work.
A Corporate Giving Fund is typically less-costly and less time-consuming to administer than other forms of gift administration, such as setting up your own 501(c)(3) organization, but it still allows you to establish a charitable legacy in the name of your business and to fulfill multiple charitable interests.
Working through the Community Foundation, your gift can be combined with others to increase the impact in areas you care about most, it qualifies you for maximum tax advantage under federal law, and allows you to take advantage of the expertise of professional program staff and investment managers.
