Corporate philanthropy

Businesses partner with Hamilton Community Foundation to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of their charitable giving, allowing more time for the company to focus on community impact and employee engagement.

Establishing the GT French Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation was a way of honouring the company’s long history in Hamilton and the contributions to the community by its founder and previous owners. Read the full story here.
