The 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 purposes that enrich the students’ experiences here at the college.
The CFR staff identifies potential funding sources and provides guidance in the planning and coordination of approaches to 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 below.
