Corporate & Foundation Relations (CFR) teams exist in tandem and separate from individual-giving. The CFR team’s goals are to collaborate between colleges, enhance internal communication and coordination, and create synergy across the organization to deliver impact for corporation or foundation giving. Strategic engagement needs diligent coordination, tight processes that have flexibility built in, and top level leadership support from the President of the organization and individual units, to the Foundation CEO. This presentation walks you through a real case history of how the CFR team operates and what its best practices, processes and metrics are specifically highlighting the Corporate-Engagement-Workgroup.
