Foundation Resources

Northwestern University Office for Foundation Relations

The Office of Foundation Relations is Northwestern's central office in support of fundraising from private professional foundations. The Office of Foundation Relations is available to work with Northwestern faculty who are planning to approach private foundations. We provide research information on foundations and identify those that might be interested in funding particular projects. We review proposals and letters of inquiry, provide editorial assistance, and help gather materials for submission. Our office also works closely with the Office of Sponsored Research to coordinate grant proposals and process awards.

Note: The Office of Foundation Relations is responsible for coordinating approaches to all foundations on behalf of Northwestern University.
