This is your opportunity to give back to a community that has given so much to you and become part of the giving heart of Coquitlam. The Coquitlam Foundation already had a history of working with civic-mined corporations such as yours. As a corporation with a potential for a long and fruitful life in our community your best option might be a donor-advised fund. We can help you set one up.
The nice thing about a fund with the Coquitlam Foundation is it doesn’t involve a lot of your employees time, you can guide the contributions generated by your fund. We set up and dedicate a webpage to your fund with your logo and story. You are invited to our awards ceremony where you will be asked to meet with those receiving your generous contribution – you will see the positive impact you will make directly.
The fund also does not have to stay static – you can help it grow over time and we can help you. You can promote the fund to others, hold fund raisers, involve staff and make it a team building event, vendors can contribute as can family and friends. Dividends from stocks can be diverted to the fund. Over time you will see how significant the impact will be. Steady growth, big or small, will result in a bigger impact.
Are you constantly asked for contributions? Does your corporation have a particular concern in your community you want addressed? The Coquitlam Foundation is here to help you as your partner in your philanthropic desires to have a positive impact on the community of Coquitlam and be part of the giving heart of Coquitlam.
