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.

There are four levels of service that the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville can provide for corporations with giving funds we manage.
