SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 20 /CSRwire/ - Entrepreneurs Foundation and Silicon Valley Community Foundation have entered into a formal agreement to jointly provide philanthropic and community involvement services to companies based in Silicon Valley. Through this partnership, companies now have a comprehensive solution to building community and philanthropic programs that is seamless, integrated and collaborative.
Entrepreneurs Foundation (EF) is a non-profit public charity on a mission to encourage, empower and enhance corporate philanthropy and corporate community involvement. EF encourages companies to be philanthropic by providing guidance and expertise to companies that haven't yet adopted a community or philanthropy program; empowers companies to be philanthropic by providing open sourced resources, tools and best practices and on-line and in-person forums to make it easy for companies to learn on their own or from each other; and EF enhances corporate philanthropy by providing direct services to companies who have programs in place but need strategic or tactical support to make their programs better.
Silicon Valley Community Foundation is the second largest community foundation in the U.S. and works with 40 corporate partners who give locally, nationally and internationally. The community foundation offers numerous services to facilitate, grow and manage corporate philanthropy programs for some of the region’s most well known companies and for private corporate foundations. These services include strategic philanthropy advice and planning, accounting and financial services, investment management and grant processing so that corporate partners can focus on giving. Corporate partners ranging from start-ups to global corporations to family-owned businesses have found that the community foundation's charitable expertise, administrative help and flexibility are extremely efficient.
The mission of Silicon Valley Community Foundation is to strengthen the common good, improve quality of life and address the most challenging problems. These challenges are addressed through effective grantmaking programs, world-class donor services, research and an ability to bring together diverse groups of problem-solvers.
Together, EF and Silicon Valley Community Foundation have a suite of services that helps companies design, implement and execute their philanthropic and community involvement programs.
