Welcome to the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU). Our highly collaborative team works to build mutually beneficial relationships between the university and corporations and foundations, focusing on partnership-building and philanthropy.

About the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations

WSSU’s Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations identifies, cultivates, manages, solicits, and stewards relationships with corporations and foundations that support the institution’s strategic priorities. Our team manages corporate and foundation activity across the campus and works closely with institutional leadership to create and implement corporate and foundation strategies.

Our team can help your company build a robust partnership with WSSU. We will match your company’s business interests to the university’s initiatives, programs, and talent. We help facilitate conversations with faculty and staff. We work closely with the Office of Career Development Services to help our corporate partners recruit WSSU students for jobs and internships.
