Ways to Engage

Partners in Philanthropy: Fulfilling Local Nonprofit Needs

Learn about specific needs in the community and provide grants that align with your giving priorities through our Granted program.

Corporate Giving Funds​

Organize all your company’s philanthropy under one structure, without the tax paperwork and legal fees of a private foundation. Focus on one area of interest, designate proceeds to a community grant fund, create an employee assistance fund, or leave your options open as a Donor Advised Fund. The possibilities are endless. ​

Community Initiative Sponsorship

Underwrite efforts to empower nonprofits’ effectiveness, convene stakeholders to solve community challenges, or inspire generosity through supporting a giving circle.​

Matching Gift Programs

Leverage matching gift programs from a parent company or franchise brand. Or build a matching funds program for employee time and monetary contributions.
