Foundation Relations has a broad array of experience and approaches for developing strong partnerships with foundations as we seek funding for the University’s research, programs, academics, and initiatives. We work with senior leadership, faculty and Advancement to provide expertise, coordination and tools to successfully connect the university with the foundation community. We are dedicated to our philanthropic partners and work to ensure their interests are maintained as our first priority.
