The CERN Partnerships & Fundraising Section (formerly the CERN Development Office) is in charge of developing and implementing CERN's fundraising strategy, and of ensuring coordination of fundraising undertaken by, or on behalf of, CERN and the CERN & Society Foundation.  It is the office responsible for driving the fundraising efforts for CERN & Society projects and providing administrative support to the CERN & Society Foundation.

The Partnerships & Fundraising Section is also available to advise and support donors to identify the project that best matches their priorities, the most appropriate way of giving, and how CERN would recognise their support.
