Good Question: Corporate & Foundation Relations

Q: We are looking to expand our corporate and foundation relations program, do you have any information on trends or what other institutions are doing?

A: The Library often receives questions about corporate and foundation relations best practices, metrics, giving trends and the administration of gifts, grants and contracts. This collection was developed to bring together resources on these topics.

Resources include articles on corporate and foundation relations best practices and metrics, giving trends from the Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey and excerpts from the CASE reporting standards with sample documentation on differentiating gifts, grants and contracts.

An additional sample collection includes a variety of CFR sample types, such as annual reports, strategic plans and brochures.
