CSUSM Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) is a campus-wide resource for those within the CSUSM community who seek external philanthropic support from corporations and private grant-making foundations. Specifically, the request for support must be in line with institutional priorities identified by the president, provost, and deans.
If you have a compelling project or program that has been approved by your dean, the first step to identifying private support is to meet with the development director assigned to your college and the director of CFR.
We are here to advise and assist you throughout the fundraising cycle by:
Please note that CFR only assists with philanthropic requests; government grants and contracts are handled by the Office of Graduate Studies and Research (OGSR). However, your corporate or foundation-funded research, project, or program may require the administration of OGSR. We will help determine if this collaboration is required for your request.
We look forward to working with you to secure support for your scholarly, academic, and outreach goals.
