The CERN Partnerships & Fundraising Section (former CERN Development Office) is in charge of developing and implementing CERN's fundraising strategy, and of ensuring coordination of fundraising undertaken at or on behalf of CERN and the CERN & Society Foundation. As such, it is responsible for driving the fundraising efforts for CERN & Society projects. The Partnerships & Fundraising Section raises funds on behalf of and provides administrative support to the CERN & Society Foundation.

The Partnerships & Fundraising Section also provides advice and support to donors in identifying the project that best matches their priorities, the most appropriate way of giving, and the way in which CERN would recognize their support.
