The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region works with businesses and organizations of all sizes to create philanthropic solutions that fit to a T!

Corporate Giving

A corporate giving program can bolster a corporation’s bottom line and its presence in the marketplace.  Partnering with the Community Foundation, a leader in local philanthropy, will give your company access to our staff’s unparalleled community knowledge and expertise, as well as an array of cost-effective choices.

Executive Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund can be opened with a gift of cash, stock, real estate, or many other types of assets.  Several local businesses have chosen to open donor advised funds.  Some have chosen to allow their executive level employees to use the fund to support the causes they care about; other companies give all employees the opportunity to recommend small grants to their favorite charities each year.

Corporate Scholarship Fund

A scholarship fund can be established to support the educational pursuits of your employees and/or their children or grandchildren – or, you may choose to establish a fund to support other worthy students.  Either way, a scholarship fund demonstrates your commitment to the future of your business – and community.

Corporate Foundation

Organize your corporate giving under one structure and increase your visibility in the community through a corporate foundation fund.  Community Foundation staff can help you evaluate your corporate giving goals and objectives and plan a grantmaking program that will have maximum community impact.  Based on what is important to you and your employees, we highlight community issues and help you formulate strategies to respond to these needs.  Through a grantmaking process customized for you, the Community Foundation can provide a wide range of services and ensure that your grant dollars are being used for their intended purpose.

Please call the Foundation at (518) 446-9638 to discuss these options further.
