The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations serves as a liaison between foundation officers and university leadership, faculty members, and program directors in order to better facilitate foundation engagement and support. We stay abreast of ongoing trends in foundation giving, as well as university initiatives to help align priorities that support the university's mission and key priorities of service and outreach.
- Reaching out to foundation officials on a regular basis to proactively explore possible areas of synergy;
- Developing and managing relationships with a broad array of foundations to ensure a diverse range of topics and opportunities are identified and cultivated;
- Engaging with the campus community to stay informed of faculty projects and institutional initiatives that might align well with foundation interests; and
- Working with leadership, faculty, and administrators to develop and implement customized strategies for securing foundation support.
