Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends
For Faculty and Staff
The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) assists Brandeis faculty and program directors seeking support from corporations and foundations for research, teaching and outreach projects. Review the resources and services we offer below and contact us to discuss ways we can collaborate.
- How to seek support from foundations
- Foundation and grant opportunity databases
- Calendar of key foundation RFPs
Please contact CFR before soliciting any corporation or foundation for fundraising purposes. The University has active relationships with many of these entities that must be coordinated carefully.
CFR also publishes a monthy newsletter with recent news and items of interest from the world of corporate and foundation funding.
CFR works closely with our colleagues in the Office of Research Administration (ORA) to assist faculty and others to pursue external funding from private organizations. ORA ensures that all proposals and awards are administered in compliance with federal laws and regulations and with Brandeis' policies on sponsored programs, and that the University meets its obligations to external sponsors.
When submitting a grant proposal for a sponsored program or project, regardless of the nature of the funding agency, the Brandeis investigator must always contact ORA and follow the policies it administers.
