Welcome Corporations & Businesses!

This site is a "gateway" to help you navigate the variety of ways the University relates to and collaborates with business, industry and private foundations. The Corporate and Foundation Relations office seeks to maximize contributions and other support to the University of Virginia from corporations and foundations, by creating, maintaining and enhancing mutually beneficial relationships between these entities and university units.

Our Services: We provide an infrastructure for prospect coordination, planning, solicitation and other services that empower university units to conduct these activities in the most effective manner. Faculty members, development officers and administrators will find the comprehensive resources compiled in the Foundation Relations and Philanthropy web pages to be a highly useful compendium of information on philanthropy research and the proposal process which can increase the likelihood of success – especially with private foundations. Our central staff can help you get started based upon your interests and needs.
