The Greater Houston Community Foundation is proud to partner with leading Houston companies to enhance their social investment and ensure that their giving has maximum impact. GHCF can serve as an efficient administrative solution to support company giving through corporate donor advised funds and other giving vehicles. Our comprehensive approach also ensures that a broad range of customized services is always available.
Supporting corporate philanthropy.
CUSTOMIZED PHILANTHROPIC ADVISING
Your plan is at the core of effective giving. Each company is unique and GHCF works with you to understand your values, market position, and stakeholders. GHCF helps you assess your current corporate giving and engagement, develop your mission and focus areas, address your grant making strategies, and structure reporting and evaluation.
Projects have also included landscape analyses, social needs assessments, nonprofit evaluation, grant design, and benchmarking with peer companies.
Learn. Engage. Advance. Persevere.
The Hess Corporation engaged GHCF to design, implement, and manage a three-year dropout prevention program in two HISD middle schools. The LEAP Program instills a commitment toward learning during the formative middle school years, equipping students with the tools to transition to high school, persevere through graduation, and aspire for success in advanced vocational training or higher education. GHCF manages the Leap Initiative by partnering with in and out-of-school organizations to provide resources to students and their families.
Partnering with the foundation allows us to concentrate on where we want to give and who we want to give to versus spending all of our time with the administrative burdens of giving.
