The Houston Chronicle Highlights Partnership Between GHCF & Hilcorp
At the Greater Houston Community Foundation, we are committed to providing expert guidance to help philanthropic companies advance their missions and achieve their strategic goals. No matter the kind or size, whether your organization is private, corporate, or family-based, our specialists draw upon their many years of experience to help make your philanthropic strategy a long term success. To demonstrate the appreciation you have for your employees and to educate them about the joys of philanthropy, GHCF can help you establish and fund a plan for each of your employees. Our Individual Employee Funds are a special benefit which gives your employees the opportunity to choose where they want their philanthropic dollars to go and enables them to contribute their own money to the fund via automatic payroll deductions. GHCF also offers training to help your employees learn more about how they can give back to their community by donating to and investing in philanthropic causes in which they believe.
