Corporate Giving

We can help your business drive change in our community. With more than 25 corporate funds, London Community Foundation offers strategic ways for corporations big and small to give with impact. Whether your philanthropic vision is short- or long-term (or a little of both), we can assist you in generating a plan that fulfills your charitable goals while creating a more vibrant and caring community for all Londoners.

 By partnering with London Community Foundation, we will help you create a customized giving plan that has measurable results. With our in-depth community knowledge, we can maximize your organization’s impact on the community. 

 This is how we’re different. We offer:

  • The option of creating your own charitable fund named for your business. A fund can be started with a gift of any size. 
  • Customized giving, including long-term philanthropy (i.e. endowment) or immediate granting. 
  • In-depth knowledge of our local community as well as connections to national and global charities – helping you make high-impact, strategic grants.
  • Fiscally responsible, low-cost philanthropy. 
  • Personalized service that makes giving flexible and easy.
  • A nimble and creative approach in terms of recognizing your generosity in order to best help you meet your business objectives.

Working with London Community Foundation is an excellent way to demonstrate to your staff and customers your commitment to the community where you do business, now and forever.
