Corporate and Foundation Relations

Corporate and Foundation Relations can help faculty and staff identify funding opportunities that are relevant to their work; initiate or steward a relationship with a corporation or foundation; and create LOIs, proposals, and other materials to submit to a potential funding institution.

The CFR hosts the Foundation Directory Online (Professional) which is the most comprehensive source of information available on foundations, corporate giving programs, and grant making public charities in the US, and contains data on more than 100,000 such entities.  Among the information accessible through this service are recent awards by sponsor, location, and recipient organization; sponsoring companies; and IRS returns (Forms 990 and 990-PF).

The FDO is a paid subscription service, accessible (free of charge) to Rutgers faculty, students, and staff through the Rutgers Library website.
