The University of Utah Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations plays a major role in supporting the institution's mission of teaching, research, and public service. Working closely with the various campus areas, we help initiate and cultivate relationships between the University and private organizations to support U programs.
To ensure successful implementation of ideas in concert with philanthropic partners we endeavor to uncover potential funding opportunities, work closely with staff and faculty to establish relationships with funding partners, define strategies to build support for proposed activities, and work with teams to deliver results that meet the expectations of the funder and the needs of the U.
We are a service-oriented team here to help you with proposal editing and review, background research and lead qualification, relationship facilitation, and long-term stewardship of partnerships. We encourage all staff and faculty to reach out to the CFR team early and often for any corporate and foundation needs.
