Funding requests are accepted on an annual basis, from November 1 through January 15, 2020.

“Our employees’ passions drive our foundation’s focus,” said Joseph Glenn, senior director for small and medium business sales and California foundation president at Consolidated Communications. “Driven by our company values, our employees generously give to organizations addressing critical needs in our community. As a board, it’s our responsibility and privilege to ensure our donors’ dollars go where they will make the most impact.”

Since 1992, the Consolidated Communications Foundation has given $5.5 million to nonprofits serving the local community. In California, the foundation focuses on organizations addressing hunger and homelessness, children and families, and physical and mental health.
