Corporate and Foundation Relations

You're looking for private funding. We're here to help.

By working with our department early on, you can benefit in all stages of the fundraising process:

  • Evaluate if corporate or foundation funding is the right fit to support your work.
  • Identify potential corporate and foundation funders and partners.
  • Connect with the right people and make your best case for support.
  • Sustain positive, productive relationships with your corporate and foundation partners.

Explore our resources, and then contact Yvonne J. Devineni, Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations.

The earlier we hear about your interest in finding private funding for a project, the more we can do to help. This includes helping you find funding opportunities you might not know about and meeting the criteria, which may not be clearly explained online, for those opportunities.

The College of Arts & Sciences' Corporate and Foundation Relations team can help you build fruitful relationships with companies and foundations. Working with private funders is different than interacting with public funding agencies. Our team can answer questions, introduce you to foundation staff, support site visits, and help you explore partnerships with companies.
