Corporate and Foundation Relations

Support from corporations and foundations is vital to the growth and success of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh’s medical and health science research and care.

Our Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) team welcomes the opportunity to work with organizations that share our vision and assist in facilitating support for clinicians and researchers at UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh’s six health sciences schools.

Corporate Relations

The Corporate Relations team is responsible for requesting, securing, and documenting philanthropic donations from industry. We seek to promote mutually beneficial, long-term relationships, and can assist you in building strategic partnerships with UPMC. 

As a leading academic health center, we pledge to work with industry in a transparent and socially beneficial manner to jointly pursue our shared goal of advancing science and improving the health and welfare of our society. Corporations have supported a variety of initiatives at UPMC, including funds for fellowship and resident programs, community outreach activities, patient education, and in-kind gifts of equipment.

Foundation Relations

The Foundation Relations Office identifies and solicits professionally-staffed foundations, both local and national, to support the medical and health science research, programs, and priorities. The team assists faculty, clinicians, and program directors to write and submit competitive proposals that fit within the mission and funding opportunities offered by charitable foundations.

Other services include: proposal editing, ensuring funders’ priorities are addressed and emphasized; stewarding funders and building relationships on behalf of UPMC, Pitt, and their clinicians and faculty; managing the gift agreement and reporting process; and organizing foundation visits to campus, labs, or clinics.
