Corporate and Foundation Development
Under the Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement, Corporate and Foundation Development is responsible for identifying, cultivating and soliciting commitments to ECSU from corporation and foundations at the local, state and national level. In particular, this unit is concerned with the writing, submission and management of proposals that request $250,000 or more to fund academic and scholarship programs and community outreach projects as well as the endowment building capacity of the university.
Corporate & Foundation Development, in cooperation with the Office of Sponsored Programs, assists faculty and staff with the proper networking, the creation of fiscally sound budgets and the production of strategically written proposals in order to secure external funding from charitable organizations in the private sector. In addition, this office helps to ensure that each proposal adheres to the guidelines, deadline dates and paperwork requirements provided by each individual corporation or foundation.
