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. We encourage you to review the resources and services we offer below and to contact us if you believe we can help.

Note: 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 newsletter, the Corporate & Foundation Relations News Digest, on a monthly basis. This newsletter contains recent news and items of interest from the world of corporate and foundation funding. Subscribe to the CFR Digest.

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 is responsible for ensuring that all proposals and awards are administered in compliance with federal laws and regulations and with Brandeis University policies on sponsored programs and that the University meets its obligations to external sponsors. ORA must always be contacted—and the policies it administers must be followed—when a Brandeis investigator is submitting a grant (sponsored program or project) proposal, regardless of the nature of the funding agency.
