Partnership for Corporate Giving

For business leaders who want to streamline their corporate giving and support their community, Stark Community Foundation's Partnership for Corporate Giving offers personalized service designed to assist both small businesses and large corporations. Corporate giving can enhance your caring image and engage your employees all while aligning with your business plan. It's also a powerful marketing tool and builds positive relationships in communities where you do business.

Some of the services we offer to companies are:

Charitable Planning

Through a unique and strategic set of giving exercises, our experienced donor relations and grants team can work with your employees to:

  • identify your company's areas of interest
  • establish giving guidelines
  • create your giving plan including charitable goals and mission statement
  • develop strategies to fulfill your philanthropic mission

Grantmaking Support

We can guide your company in your giving by highlighting what local organizations are making a difference in the areas you care most about. Throughout the grantmaking process, our staff will:

  • create a custom, online grant application
  • distribute an RFP to potential grantees
  • thoroughly review grant proposals
  • recommend funding opportunities
  • coordinate site visits to potential grantees

Grantee Accountability

To ensure your grant dollars are being used for their intended purpose and are having the impact you desire in the community, we can:

  • maintain a reporting schedule for each grantee
  • collect progress reports from grantees
  • schedule on-site visits to see the impact your gift is making

Bi-Annual Meetings

Twice a year, a group of local companies gather to learn more about potential funding opportunities, network and collaborate to maximize their philanthropic impact in the community. During these gatherings, companies will:

  • connect with local companies
  • hear from area organizations about current community needs and projects
  • exchange ideas for collaboration including pool their resources to achieve meaningful change
