Amplifying our giving impact through the Hyland Fund

The Hyland Fund in partnership with the Cleveland Foundation works with nonprofit organizations to develop careers in technology.

Making a greater impact to further our philanthropic mission

In 2022, Hyland partnered with the Cleveland Foundation to establish the Hyland Fund. This charitable fund enables us to be more intentional and impactful with our giving, while closely aligning with our Hyland values and goal of building and inspiring careers in technology globally. 

The corporate-advised Hyland Fund is a new structure for Hyland’s long-standing corporate giving efforts, and will amplify our giving impact. 

The Hyland Fund will: 

  • Leverage the deep knowledge and expertise of the world’s first community foundation, the Cleveland Foundation, to build an effective, scalable and sustainable grantmaking program for Hyland

  • Improve how we source, review and approve funding decisions by the establishment of a formal review and approval process annually 

  • Enable us to invite employees, stakeholders and the community at-large to participate in our philanthropic efforts to make a more significant impact in our communities through charitable giving

The Cleveland Foundation, the world’s first community foundation, is classified as a public charity and exists to manage funds by donors for the benefit of a specific cause. By virtue of the Hyland Fund, Hyland gains access to the foundation’s large investment pools and proven track record of more than a century of nonprofit investment management. This leads to greater growth and greater stability for us to fulfill our charitable mission.
