Corporate, Government & Foundation Relations

The Office of Corporate, Government and Foundation Relations (OCGFR) works with businesses, foundations, government agencies, and leaders to identify Sage initiatives that help advance their marketing, policy or philanthropic strategies.

Support of this kind can include direct contracts, original research, professional development, curricular design, scholarship or underwriting of special events. The OCGFR seeks unrestricted operating support, special project funding, as well as capital and endowment funding that advances the mission and goals of The Sage Colleges.

The OCGFR facilitates monthly Grants Planning Committee (GPC) meetings to review grants from an institutional perspective and to support faculty and staff pursing external funding in support of research, community outreach, or program enhancement.

The OCGFR is an integral part of The Sage College's Development and Alumnae/i Relations effort. Alumnae/i serving in leadership of government, corporations or foundations can enhance their support of Sage by providing access to decision makers, helping to secure funds for Sage programs and requests, or simply applying for matching gift funds should your employer provide such a benefit.
