Community Initiatives (CI) Foundation enables corporations and individuals to work together on projects that benefit their local community. Community Initiatives Foundation is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that acts as the foundation and fiscal agent allowing clients who do not have its own 501c3 status to raise money in support of the local nonprofit organization most important to them through events and programs. Benefitting organizations have included community outreach programs, educational initiatives, youth education and empowerment, and mentoring programs.
How Does it Work
CI Foundation can help you give back by allowing you the opportunity to support an event or program produced by CI Foundation that aligns with your mission or allows professionals to choose a non profit organization most important to you and raise money through a program CI Foundation assists in developing to support that organization without needing to start a separate foundation. By hosting an event through Community Initiatives Foundation or simply creating a fund in your name, CI Foundation will manage your gift giving requests and support organizations on your behalf.
CI Foundation Fund Grant Process
While most CI Foundation clients have pre-selected a benefiting non-profit organization, CI Foundation is the beneficiary of many events produced by Celebrity International (CI) Management, an event management company co-owned by Community Initiatives Foundation partners. CI Management owns and manages additional events around the country and has created a fund within Community Initiatives Foundation, CI Foundation Fund, to help support additional non-profit organizations throughout the community. This is done through a grant process in which non-profit organizations fill out an application detailing information about their organization and the CI Foundation board will annually select to support additional beneficiaries from the CI Foundation Fund.
