Corporations and Foundations
As the largest provider of the North Shore’s workforce, Salem State University enjoys vibrant relationships with scores of businesses and non-profits throughout the region. The university relies on their vision and generous corporate philanthropy to support a wide variety of student and campus initiatives.
Corporate and foundation relations coordinates the institution’s efforts to establish partnerships with private foundations and regional businesses. The office develops and applies for competitive grants from regional and national foundations, providing additional funding for targeted programs, research and capital improvements. Sponsorships provide businesses with opportunities to align themselves with Salem State while also receiving marketing exposure at events. Exceptional corporate commitments, such as leadership gifts made through the campaign, are frequently recognized with highly visible and enduring acknowledgments, such as having an event or a classroom named for the corporation.
