Corporate & Foundation Giving


The Corporate and Foundation Relations Office (CFR) is the central university office for fundraising from private corporations and foundations.

Our goal is to increase the amount and relevance of grants to the ECU community. We work to promote university priorities, as designated by the Chancellor, the Trustees, the Provost, and the Deans of the Colleges.

Part of the Office of Development, CFR provides prospect research, cultivation, coordination, proposal review and editing services and stewardship assistance to faculty, administrators and center directors in their work with corporations and private foundations.

CFR can help identify and approach potential funding sources, plan and coordinate solicitations, assist in inquiries and grant proposals and gather supporting material.
