The use of "foundation"


I am using the word "foundation" specifically to refer to a foundation that was esteblished by a company. Am I wrong?

See example:

Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream formed a foundation for the sole purpose of giving back to their local community, embodying the true sense of social responsibility.

This use of 'foundation' is correct.  Don't worry. 


I suggest, however, that you change 'for the sole' to 'with the sole'.
