Corporate and Foundation Relations

Welcome to the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations is the College’s primary liaison to private foundations and corporations. The Office cultivates and maintains relationships with grant-making organizations that have funding interests that match the College’s mission and works with faculty on proposal submissions and stewardship for awarded grants.

Foundations and corporations support a wide range of initiatives and programs at Teachers College, including, among others, scholarships for graduate students preparing for urban teaching careers; renovation of the physical plant; local, national and international professional development programs for teachers and principals; partnerships with schools in Harlem, the Bronx, and other localities; programs that provide information on education to journalists, policymakers, parents, and other decision-makers; and research on the critical issues facing education.

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations welcomes all inquiries and contact from foundations and corporations, as well as suggestions from faculty, alumni and friends of the College on potential partnerships with foundations and corporations.
