Corporate & Foundation Giving

Gifts and grants from corporations and foundations are vital to ensure that Emerson can continue to educate the next generation of leaders in communication and the arts. 

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations is responsible for the planning, organization, and implementation of a program to build financial support for the College from local, regional, and national corporations and foundations. We raise support to meet pressing program needs, capital projects, and College initiatives. 

Below are highlights of recent corporate and foundation support received.
