Corporate & Foundation Relations CRM Initiative

This article applies to: Salesforce


The Cornell Corporate & 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 that will 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.

The project is a partnership that includes the Office of the Provost, the colleges and schools, the Division of Research, and Alumni Affairs & Development, in collaboration with the Office of the Chief Information Officer.

These are the members of the CFR-CFM steering committee and working group.
