The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) creates and strengthens partnerships between foundations and the University through:

  • Aligning private foundation funding with campus priorities and promoting funding opportunities to faculty.

  • Helping foundations navigate the University, find faculty and programs of interest, and arrange for campus meetings.

  • Working with current foundation partners to ensure timely and informative reporting on and responsive stewardship of their support.
