Corporate and Foundation Giving

For corporations and foundations, the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) facilitates mutually beneficial collaborations, partnerships, and sponsorships in areas such as philanthropy, sponsored research, student recruitment, technology transfer, and continuing education. For faculty, staff, and administrators, CFR provides assistance in identifying, cultivating, soliciting and stewarding major grants and gifts.

CFR manages relationships and coordinates proposals to major corporations and foundations. Many large philanthropic organizations prefer proposals come directly from the president of the university. It is CFR's role to ensure that only the strongest proposals are submitted to leading corporations and foundations. Faculty and staff seeking private grant funding are expected to partner with CFR before embarking on contacts with corporations and foundations.
