Your Tufts Partnership Begins Here

The Tufts Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) facilitates, develops and stewards mutually rewarding relationships between Tufts University and our corporate and foundation partners. These relationships involve a variety of funding arrangements for research, projects or programs at Tufts.  The CFR office matches these partners with university resources and a variety of  partnership opportunities, including:

  • a monetary gift or grant to the university;
  • donated equipment or other in-kind support;
  • a sponsored research agreement;
  • graduate capstone projects;
  • industry collaboration programs; or
  • access to other university expertise and resources.
