Corporate philanthropy or corporate giving is the act of corporations donating profits, or resources, to nonprofit organizations.

Corporations most commonly donate cash, but can also donate the use of their facilities, property, services, or advertising support. They may also set up employee volunteer groups that then donate their time.
