Corporate & Foundation Support

Corporations and private foundations have historically played an important role in student, faculty and program support at UConn.

Whether working with a local company to develop opportunities for UConn students or helping coordinate an award from a private foundation located across the country, the Corporate and Foundation Relations staff plays a vital role in connecting philanthropic organizations and corporate giving offices to the University. In our fundraising and stewardship, we work closely with faculty, staff and administrators across the schools, colleges and core offices such as Admissions and the Office for Sponsored Programs.

Corporate Support

Strategic business alliances are essential to building an increasingly competitive workforce within the state and beyond. The UConn Foundation fosters strong and enduring partnerships between the business community and the University. Our corporate partners can easily connect to the University’s schools and colleges, and have access to distinguished faculty, exceptional students, broad research capabilities and a host of academic disciplines.

Foundation Support

Charitable foundations share our commitment to research and education as a means of addressing global challenges. Through its partnerships with charitable foundations, the UConn Foundation helps the University community identify, establish and coordinate foundation support for the University’s educational, academic, and community service priorities. We focus on long-term relationships with dynamic philanthropic organizations, from national foundations with worldwide reach to regionally based private and community foundations.
