Corporate and Foundation Relations
The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations works closely with the members of the President’s Council to establish strategic partnerships with corporations. Our goal is to create mutually beneficial relationships between the business community and the University. Through these partnerships, we match Fordham's resources to a company's strategic needs and objectives. President’s Council members support Fordham’s Corporate Relations ambitious goals by:
- Serving as executive door-openers to cultivate relationships in targeted industries
- Supporting Corporate Relations efforts in philanthropic giving opportunities and recruitment activities
- Creating opportunities for executive engagement, such as on-campus guest speaking and executive shadowing
- Connecting Fordham to other corporate leaders who are not graduates of our institution for similar engagement
"From hosting CEO breakfasts, to creating internship opportunities for Fordham students at Bernstein, to guest lecturing on campus, my participation in the Corporate Relations efforts at Fordham has been a win-win-win-win —good for Fordham, rewarding for the students, beneficial to Bernstein, and personally enjoyable for me. I encourage you to consider the ways in which you can participate and advance Fordham's mission through Corporate Relations."
—Charlie Menges, GSB'64, Principal, Sanford Bernstei
