Corporate Giving

GIVING_Corporate_giving_imageGreater Focus, Greater Impact

When businesses evaluate their success, it’s often in terms of profit and customer satisfaction. At the Community Foundation our measurement of success is not much different except that profit is represented by the measurement of community impact. 

We can help transform your corporate giving efforts from unfocused check writing to meaningful community connections that build your brand, engage employees, and delight customers. Exploring when, where, how and why you make investments in your community not only strengthens your company’s culture, it also is a powerful reminder why your business was created in the first place.

By partnering with the Foundation you can be more intentional with your gifting efforts and you are reassured that every dollar you invest is being maximized to its fullest potential. Furthermore, our deep knowledge of community issues and effective local nonprofits helps organizations align their philanthropic programs with their overall mission and strategy.

Studies prove that a company’s ties to a community cause yield benefits not only to the communities where customers and employees live and work but also to the company itself. Here are the facts:

  • 93% of Americans say that they have a more positive image of a product or company when it supports a cause they care about.
  • 89% of Americans said they would switch brands or retailers based on associations with a good cause, when price and quality are equal.
  • 82% of Americans consider a company’s social and environmental commitment before deciding where to shop or what to buy.

By working with the Community Foundation, we help make your corporate giving easier for you and impactful for the community. For more information, contact Barb Granger, Vice President of Philanthropic Giving at 253.345.4170.
