Corporations & Foundations
The Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) team initiates and strengthens UD's partnerships with corporations and foundations to create mutually beneficial outcomes. These strategic relationships grow UD's philanthropy and connect faculty, researchers, and students to external partners with matching areas of interest that have included everything from research on Parkinson's disease to workforce development.
Our team works closely with faculty and staff throughout UD's seven academic colleges, the Research Office, and the Career Center to understand the goals of these areas and identify funders whose philanthropic missions match those needs. We actively engage with these funders, craft and submit successful funding requests, monitor, and report progress on funded projects, and ensure proper stewardship.
For general inquiries or specific questions about a corporation or foundation, contact the CFR team at DAR-CFR@udel.edu or 302-831-7450.
