Faculty and Staff Frequently Asked Questions
Can I approach a certain company about a donation for my department's fundraiser or event?
Vanderbilt's Corporate Relations department is the main connection between local companies and faculty and staff. The Corporate Relations office asks that you check with us before approaching any companies for donations. Many companies prefer one channel to receive donation requests. Since Vanderbilt has so many programs supported by companies, checking in with our office first before approaching a company ensures that we adhere to the company's preferences.
