Corporate & Foundation Relations

Roundtables

Central CFR is committed to fostering communication, coordination and collaboration among UW colleagues working in corporate and foundation relations. We hold monthly roundtables to share and discuss timely topics, including best practices, trends and challenges, with the goal of increasing the University’s ability to build engagement and partnership with corporations, foundations and other organizations. All UW employees interested in corporate and foundation relations are welcome to attend. Email Carolyn Smith, clss92@uw.edu, to get on the roundtable distribution list.
