The NC State Natural Resources Foundation, Inc. (NCSNRF) was established in 1929. Originally called the NC Forestry Foundation, Inc, it is the oldest foundation at N.C. State University.  The Foundation is governed by a 16-member Board of Directors, which oversees more than $150 million in assets. The Board works closely with staff to promote College of Natural Resources.

The foundation strives to meet all the needs of the college, particularly external support including: scholarships, fellowships and professorships; operating funds for programs; advisory and advocacy groups for academic and research programs; fund raising capability; management of land holdings; and stewardship of donor gifts and funding support for CNR’s Development Office.
