Syracuse University

Call Us First

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) manages a portfolio of hundreds of corporations and foundations that give to higher education. We strongly encourage faculty and staff to contact us before applying to any corporations or private foundations for funding so that we can update you on the university's current relationship with that organization. This information can help increase your chances of securing funding, and it will allow us to better coordinate efforts across the university.

In addition, for some organizations, CFR requires notification prior to any contact. This may be due to limits on the numbers of applications the entity allows, an agreement between the university and the organization, or a current presidential relationship.

Please contact the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations prior to initiating contact with the following entities:
