Advancement Communications & Marketing

The Office Advancement Communications employs various marketing and communications strategies and tactics to favorably promote and position the university and its faculty, staff, and students to a variety of constituents, including alumni, friends, and donors. Advancement Communications uses a wide variety of communications vehicles, from mass communications to individual letters, proposals, and all media channels, to ensure key development messages are seamlessly integrated in all university communications efforts.

Corporate, Foundation and Research Relations

Corporate and Foundation Relations cultivates the university’s most valuable and strategic relationships among business, foundation and association leaders to engage them in solving complex issues. We help jump-start and sustain good work that might not otherwise happen by facilitating the creation of partnerships across schools, centers and institutes at Tulane.

Gift Planning

Gift Planning allows you to support Tulane University while achieving your personal financial goals. You may even find an option that lets you give more than you otherwise would have thought possible.

Legal Affairs

The Office of Development Legal Affairs provides assistance on legal matters to Tulane’s Office of Development. The office provides development staff with sample language for gift agreements and resolutions for endowed funds and maintains Tulane’s gift acceptance policy.
