To strengthen Wisconsin’s learning and research environment, CFR identifies appropriate corporate and foundation grant-makers and presents opportunities for them to achieve their philanthropic objectives by supporting University projects and programs relevant to these funding sources.
Corporations and foundations are important partners in the education, research and outreach that takes place on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
