Foundation Relations

Corporate and Foundation Relations works with GSU’s current and potential foundation partners to explore new opportunities for reaching shared goals, to realize the full potential of existing collaborations, and to ensure timely and informative reporting on and responsive stewardship of foundation support.

Most foundations are mission-driven entities that seek to make a difference in society, whether at the grass-roots level or through policy change. Support for Georgia State University’s faculty, students, and programs aligns closely with the priorities of a wide range of national, regional, and family foundations.

The Importance of Foundation Relations

Public and private support is crucial to sustaining Georgia State’s standing as a preeminent public research university. Private foundation giving plays a vital role in fostering an environment of brilliant scholarship and creative discovery by supporting the University through student scholarships, sponsored research, and facilities support. The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations has mechanisms for coordinating philanthropic proposals and can work with you to organize all your philanthropic giving on campus. At Georgia State, foundations enjoy a high return on their investment with the knowledge that their gift supports a robust learning environment that educates future leaders in business, science and technology, and the arts.
