Support for Berkeley's faculty, students, and programs align closely with the priorities of a wide range of national, regional, and family foundations. These partnerships with our campus have helped develop solutions to pressing technical and social challenges, enriched the excellence of faculty research and teaching, and assisted generations of exceptional students in realizing their full academic potential.
Our CFR office helps faculty and foundations connect and collaborate to advance mutual goals that align with the university's research and teaching mission as well as foundations' strategies for change and impact.
We help foundations navigate the university, find faculty and programs of interest, and arrange for campus meetings. We also facilitate funding requests, awards, and reporting, and help illuminate campus research funding policies.
