Why should businesses get involved in the Foundation?

Many business consider the local community where they operate to be a stakeholder – important to the company’s reputation and success. Are you one of those?

If so, the Eden Prairie Community Foundation can be a vehicle for meeting and communicating with these local stakeholders. The Foundation welcomes businesses to be fund holders, donors, event sponsors, and volunteer board or committee members – roles that tell the local community that your business cares.

The Foundation is a good organization to connect with because it’s played a critical role in Eden Prairie’s well-being since the organization’s founding in 1981. Over the years, the Foundation has awarded more than 500 grants to 80-plus nonprofits and other organizations serving people who live and work in Eden Prairie.

Now, that’s connected!

If you have an Eden Prairie company, the Foundation can offer you visibility and networking. Its volunteers and supporters come from all walks of community life – the city, schools, church community, other businesses, and much more! And if you’re charitable, the Foundation can also point you toward the greatest unmet needs in Eden Prairie and show how you can make a difference.

Would you like to collaborate with the Eden Prairie Community Foundation? “Collaboration” is in our mission statement, so we’re ready whenever you are!
