Other Corporations and Foundation Information

Through our Corporate and Foundation Relations department, we develop and apply for competitive grants from regional and national foundations, providing additional funding for targeted programs, research and capital improvements.

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.

Make your impression on the greater Boston area with an event sponsorship through the Salem State Alumni Association and Salem State University Foundation.

A signature event sponsorship is a great way to network and advertise your products and services to the greater Salem State community of alumni, faculty, staff, and donors. Of the 73,430 Salem State alumni and friends, many rank as the region’s leading professionals in business, education, art, and medicine. Through sponsorship, you will have an excellent opportunity to access thousands of decision-makers living and working in greater Boston and beyond.
