University Development
Corporate & Foundation Giving

Dedicated to strategic alliances that more fully engage local, regional, and national organizations in the life of East Carolina University. The Corporate and Foundation Relations Office at East Carolina University links corporations and private foundations with the university community. It is our goal to find the best fit between the university’s priorities and the investor.

Invest in Students
For all that a university hopes to accomplish, there can be no greater goal than to provide students with the opportunity to receive an excellent education. An investment in East Carolina University is an investment in our students’ education and careers. Our students leave ready to compete with the best graduates from around the country.

Invest in Research
We are proud of East Carolina University’s growing research community. As we enter our second century, we are poised to have an even greater impact on the lives of our students, our region, our state, and beyond.

Invest in Community
ECU annually contributes $3 billion of economic impact to our region*. That impact is only expected to increase because of ECU’s Second Century Campaign, a $200 million campaign that will provide the financial resources necessary to support our impressive—and continuing—growth.

The Corporate and Foundation Relations Office at East Carolina continues to deliver on the promise of opportunity by fostering relationships between corporate partners and private foundations, and the university community. We have the resources to successfully match university priorities with investor interests, and the experience to make them work.
