Corporate Giving With Big Impact


Having an impact. Inspiring entrepreneurs. Helping those in need. Making our community even better. With the help of our partners—individuals, organizations, businesses—The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties works to support and enhance our region in many ways. And our dedicated Corporate Partners fund strategic, real-time, annual programs and initiatives, including:

  • Economic Development. In 2016 and 2017, The Foundation hosted an entrepreneurial challenge to promote small business in Downtown Utica and Rome.
  • Youth Inspiration. The Foundation recognizes that engaging and inspiring our region’s young people leads them to achieve and to succeed in their hometowns. This year’s first engagement event, supported by Corporate Partners and MVCC, is just the beginning.
  • Nonprofit Leadership Training. Many area organizations work to better our communities. Each year, our Corporate Partners fund leadership and “capacity-building” training sessions for these nonprofit groups—helping them to capably serve a wide range of community needs, and developing leadership skills to strengthen our collective capacity for service.

The Corporate Partners program at The Community Foundation can significantly enhance your organization’s engagement in our community  through dynamic sponsorship, strategic involvement, and targeted programming.
