What we do

The Iowa State University Foundation Corporate and Foundation Relations team is dedicated to creating and strengthening mutually beneficial relationships between Iowa State University and corporations and foundations.

We work closely with corporate and foundation representatives to define their interests and needs, while jointly developing corresponding objectives and types of interactions. The objectives and interactions are part of a jointly developed plan to ensure a long-term mutually beneficial relationship for both organizations.

We also work with the ISU Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development to foster relationships with business and industry partners. Partnering with corporations and foundations is part of Iowa State’s land-grant heritage.
