Foundation and Corporate Relations

The Office of Foundation and Corporate Relations at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi advances and facilitates mutually beneficial, sustainable relationships between the University and its corporate and foundation partners. Our partnerships with corporations and foundations foster unique learning experiences for our Islander students and enable research discoveries to be translated into real-world impacts.

Thanks to the generosity of local, state, and national foundations and corporations, the University is able to provide our students with the opportunity to achieve their academic and professional dreams through academic scholarships, professorships, and a variety of programs. Funding from corporations and foundations helps maintain the University’s excellence and directly impacts its exceptional students, faculty, and programs.

Each of the foundation and corporate partners that support Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi have helped build our institution into the nationally recognized campus that it is today. With your investment, you become a key partner in leadership, inspiration, innovation, and compassion.

The Office of Foundations and Corporate Relations is your access point to learn how you can partner with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi faculty and students who are at the leading edge of discovery, research, and academic excellence. Embedded within the Division of Institutional Advancement, we serve the University by collaborating with corporations and foundations to better meet student and community needs.  Partnership is essential to the University’s mission of excellence in teaching, research, and responsible citizenship in the global community. 

The Office of Foundation and Corporate Relations works to understand the goals and interests of prospective partners, and then connects corporate and foundation partners with the dynamic range of funding opportunities available at the University. By supporting the priorities of Deans, faculty, key staff, and development directors that are most relevant to the interests of corporate and foundation partners and prospects, we strengthen the University and its service to the public.

The support coordinated by the Office of Foundations and Corporate Relations directly contributes to the development of the Island University and the Corpus Christi area. Corporations and foundations are important members of the wider Coastal Bend community. Your generous support enables the University to establish new initiatives and sustain existing ones, and to fulfill its education, teaching, and outreach priorities.
