Corporate & Foundation Relations

Corporate and foundation donations create and sustain innovative academic programs.

Corporate Engagement

The University of Texas at Arlington engages companies with a holistic, mutually beneficial strategy that seeks to improve both partners. If you have questions regarding corporate funding or partnerships, please email and a member of the corporate and foundations relations team will contact you within three business days.


Foundation Relations

Working within UTA's Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Foundation Relations helps to secure funding for various programs and projects at UTA from private foundations. The Foundation Relations team is always happy to learn more about the project, program, or research for which you seek funding. Our involvement ranges considerably and is often dictated by the needs of the faculty or the degree to which the program is deemed a priority by the president, provost, or dean. We aim to offer a realistic assessment of its chances of being funded by a particular private foundation, based on a number of factors, to maximize your chances for success.
