Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR)

The Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) team within the UCLA College of Letters and Science exists to cultivate relationships with private foundations and corporations that result in sustainable financial support across the entire College.

To improve opportunities to secure funding, CFR utilizes a wide range of services and resources across campus to ensure that proposals are optimally positioned for success.  We also work in coordination with a number of campus entities including the Office of the Deans, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, and the Office of Contracts and Grants.

These working relationships are key to maintaining the internal communication that is essential for upholding UCLA’s reputation of excellence with external funders.  This is one of the main reasons our office encourages all faculty and staff to contact us first when considering a private foundation for funding purposes.
