The Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) team serves as a link between UD and foundations interested in pursuing their mission through funding priorities at the University. The team helps funders navigate the University, identify faculty and programs of interest and present meaningful funding opportunities for consideration. The CFR team strives to create and maintain strong partnerships with foundations through engagement, compelling grant proposals, grant management and effective stewardship.
