Corporate and Foundation Partnerships

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations is a central university office that helps to foster relationships between William Paterson University and private foundations and corporations. Part of Institutional Advancement, we help faculty and external funding partners connect and collaborate to advance mutual goals that align with the University’s mission.

We can facilitate funding requests, awards, and reporting, and help illuminate campus funding policies. We can also help corporations and foundations navigate the University, find faculty and programs of interest, and arrange for campus meetings.

For WP faculty and administrators, we can help identify and approach potential funding sources, plan and coordinate solicitations, assist in inquiries and grant proposals, gather supporting materials, and help facilitate campus and off-site visits. Other services provided by our office include helping with grant reporting, assistance with special events, and offering grant-writing workshops.
