Private Foundations & Corporations

The UConn Foundation’s Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) group collaborates with the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) to generate and nurture relationships with private organizations, including the university’s closest donor organizations. CFR and OVPR team together to engage funders in a coordinated manner for the optimal benefit of the University. The CFR group works closely with UConn administrators, faculty, departments, and centers in developing funding proposals, while focusing most of its effort on building the relationships that lead to proposal invitations. CFR also provides technical advice regarding philanthropic relationship building, corporate relationship building, and relationship histories.

Please see below a listing of organizations with which the CFR team is actively engaged: Please contact Chris Petkovich, Director of Foundation Relations at the UConn Foundation, at or 860-486-0303, for assistance with project ideas you may have for the University partners below.
