Foundations and Corporations

Support from foundations, corporations, and government agencies is vital to Lafayette’s mission of education and research. These contributions not only provide monetary benefits, they enhance Lafayette in other significant ways:

  • enable better ways of teaching
  • connect the campus with the community
  • link the campus with the world
  • provide scholarships for students with demonstrated financial need
  • ensure a diverse campus population
  • promote free expression and dialogue
  • enhance creativity

In sum, foundation, corporate, and government gifts and grants positively touch upon everything we do at Lafayette.

As part of the Development and College Relations department, staff at Foundation, Corporate, and Government Relations manage relationships to meet Lafayette’s institutional priorities. The emphasis is on support with the potential for having a lasting impact and attracting further assistance from other sources.
