Foundation & Corporate Philanthropy

Private and corporate foundations are generous supporters of higher education, and WPI's Office of Foundation & Corporate Philanthropy is your partner in accessing those funds. Foundation & Corporate Philanthropy helps WPI faculty and academic departments connect with private and corporate foundations and provides technical support to help you present your research, project or program to potential donors.

To make your application as successful as possible, Foundation & Corporate Philanthropy coordinates with WPI's Office of Sponsored Programs, Research Solutions Institute, and Academic & Corporate Engagement​.
