Support specific causes – homelessness prevention, education, arts, youth, families in need, that are important to your business and employees.

Whether your company is interested in general charitable giving, supporting Arlington youth or establishing a fund in honor of a high-profile employee, the Foundation can help you establish a charitable fund that is tailored to your business and your employees’ interests.

Your business can make an unrestricted contribution to the Foundation’s general endowment or a particular field of interest fund such as homelessness prevention, intellectual and developmental disabilities, the Arlington Education Fund or the Community Fund for the Arts.

You can encourage your employees to support specific causes such as literacy, cancer research or any of your business or employees’ interests.
