Corporate Advised Funds

Corporate giving, made easy.

A Corporate Advised Fund grows your company’s social impact, without adding the administrative burden. 

These funds make giving simple and easy by allowing companies and employees to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit, recommend grants to charitable organizations at their own pace, and avoid using staff time to manage funding.

If you are interested in establishing an Corporate Advised Fund for your organization, contact Micaela Weil, Donor Services Manager, at:  or 801-559-3005 x4.

Benefits of Corporate Advised Funds

Companies who engage in socially responsible activities deepen customer loyalty, boost employee morale and retention, and can have a meaningful impact in their communities. However, not every company has the capacity to run their own charitable initiatives.  Opening a Corporate Advised Fund with the Community Foundation of Utah makes it easy for you and your employees to give back while requiring minimal staff time. Corporate Advised Funds are:

  • Flexible. We accept gifts of cash, stock, real estate, C-Corp, LLCs, and other complex assets that produce an immediate tax-deduction.
  • Efficient. We manage, administer, and invest the fund, so you enjoy the benefits of a corporate foundation without the hassle of management.
  • Impactful. We work with your company to determine which causes or organizations you want to support and help you develop a personalized strategy for charitable giving.
