Corporate and Foundation Relations CRM Initiative

This article applies to: Salesforce

The Cornell Corporate and Foundation Relations Initiative, or CFR-CRM, is a collaborative, cross-campus project to create a system of shared data and a common set of tools to enable Cornell staff and faculty to manage relationships with external business entities as they pursue gifts, grants, and sponsored research. Tools will be developed to give colleges and departments a better understanding of Cornell’s business relationships and to support strategic planning.

You can stay updated on the project by joining the Salesforce Success Hub news group, News! Corporate Relations Initiative.

The project is a partnership between the Office of the Provost, the colleges and schools, the Division of Research, and Alumni Affairs and Development, in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Information Technologies and CIO. These are the members of the CFR-CRM steering committee and working group:
