Corporate & Foundation Relations

Maximizing your investment...

The corporate community is a vital partner to the Kelley School of Business achieving its key strategies of educating ethical, highly skilled business leaders and sustaining a culture of teaching innovation and research. By investing in the Kelley School of Business, our corporate partners enable us to provide critical student support, curriculum enhancement, and sustainable growth to our academies, workshops, and research centers.

Through initiatives like our Academies, Centers, Workshops and Programs, our Corporate and Foundation team work with our corporate companions to ensure that their sound investment will generate a strong return. Our C&F team works closely with many key offices and divisions of the School – including the Undergraduate and Graduate Career Services offices, Student Clubs and Associations, Academies, and Centers to develop a customized strategy for building a strong organizational presence along with depth and breadth of relationships with our students, faculty, and alumni.

Corporate Alliance Program
The goal of the Corporate & Foundation team is the acquisition of private financial support to solidify the long-term progress of the Kelley School of Business through the Corporate Alliance Program. Membership in this program represents an investment in a multi-dimensional relationship with the Kelley School of Business that offers a variety of benefits, including:
  • Visibility in published lists, ads, and donor recognition displays that will be seen by alumni and friends of the school, students, faculty and staff, and the general public
  • Access to the Dean, department chairs, faculty, career services staff members, and students who are the recipients of the organization’s philanthropy
  • Communications from the school, including the OnTopic and Kelley Magazines, as well as invitations to special events
  • Opportunities for involvement and participation, such as serving on advisory boards, presenting to classes and student groups, and judging case competitions

We are committed to assisting you in achieving your goals, from building your brand to improving your recruiting efforts. Annual corporate and foundation contributions typically range from $2,500 to $100,000 and can be designated for a variety of purposes. We invite you to explore the various options to invest in Kelley and maximize your return on your investment for your organization.

Pam Warden,
Senior Director


As we begin fourth quarter, I’m happy to report that Corporate and Foundation Relations has exceeded its annual fundraising goal. A high percentage of our funding is related to recruiting; therefore most corporate funds arrive in quarters one through three. Our success would not be possible without the many corporate partners and their representatives who advocate support for Kelley within their organizations. In addition to financial support, our corporate partners serve on advisory boards, speak in classrooms, judge cases, and most of all provide exceptional employment opportunities for our students. Thank you Kelley corporate partners!

The next few months will be filled with year-end events and banquets, case competitions, finals and final projects, and graduation. Seniors will begin their careers at the best companies and firms across the nation, and the world. Juniors and sophomores will represent Kelley in summer internship programs. Corporate and Foundation Relations will begin gearing up for the fall semester by collecting and organizing opportunities that will enhance our corporate partners’ recruiting and branding efforts, preparing strategy and involvement plans, and working toward funding the Dean’s key priorities.

If your company is interested in raising awareness of employment opportunities, becoming involved with our many centers of excellence, or representation on one of our functional advisory boards, please contact us. Betsy Feeny and I would be happy to discuss opportunities at Kelley with you.
