What is a corporate giving fund?

A corporate charitable giving fund allows your company to support your favorite charitable causes while handing the administrative and due diligence tasks off to us. 

Corporations can also consider establishing a supporting organization to the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. Corporations that choose this route for their charitable giving benefit from the affiliation with the Foundation but must adhere to the duties of a public charity.
