Charitable Services for Businesses
START OR EVOLVE YOUR CORPORATE GIVING
We help businesses design and implement giving programs that support both their corporate and charitable goals. Our Philanthropic Advisors will work closely with your organization’s leadership to determine the best opportunities for your business, then guide you on the creation and execution of a charitable strategy that fits your business culture.
ENHANCE YOUR COMPANY’S COMPENSATION PACKAGES
We offer charitable products that can make it easier for your leaders to give back to the community, while offsetting the tax consequences of their earnings. Embedding these products into the compensation packages you provide—or simply making leaders aware of the benefits of partnering with The Minneapolis Foundation—can help you promote a culture of philanthropy and position your organization as tax-smart, community-minded, and alert to the needs of employees.
SUPPORT EMERGING LEADERS AT YOUR COMPANY
Our Fourth Generation program brings together emerging leaders to learn about critical local issues, identify efforts to address them, and pool their donations to make a bigger impact than they could alone. You can support emerging leaders at your company by encouraging them to join Fourth Generation—or by offering to match their contributions to the group’s grantmaking.
