Welcome to Corporate and Foundation Relations

danceThe mission of the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) is to seek and secure financial support from foundations, corporations, and governmental agencies whose interests correspond with the priorities and programs of Williams College.  Foundation and corporate gifts to Williams have supported students, faculty, curriculum, facilities, and many other initiatives that enrich the community here at the college.

The CFR staff identifies potential funding sources and provides guidance and coordination in approaching prospective funders.  We prepare and submit grant proposals for institutional grants, provide stewardship, and assist faculty and staff in grant-seeking and grant management.

Many alumni, parents, and friends have access to foundations and corporate giving programs through which they can direct support to Williams.  Individuals who have suggestions about possible gift opportunities through private or corporate foundations should contact the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations, using the contact information at right.
