Grants Research

The Corporate & Foundation Relations team is ready to assist Tufts faculty and staff with identifying potential funding sources for their programs and research. We accomplish this by:

• Building relationships with potential funders
• Developing fund-raising strategies
• Writing grant proposals
• Helping you comply with reporting and other requirements
• Offering stewardship services such as acknowledgements and reporting

CFR oversees most research grants and funding from non-governmental sources. We’re responsible for maintaining longterm relationships with these institutions, and complement the work of the Vice Provost’s office, which manages federal grants and external funding for sponsored research.

Pivot (formerly Community of Science) is one of the major searchable funding databases available to all investigators at Tufts University. Investigators may search for funding opportunities directly or request assistance from the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations.
