The Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) team initiates and strengthens UD's partnerships with corporations and foundations. The strategic relationships grow UD's philanthropy while connecting faculty, researchers and students to key partners to help advance impactful initiatives ranging from research on Parkinson's disease to workforce development.

About CFR

Our team works closely with faculty and staff throughout UD's 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, please contact the CFR staff below.
