Work With Our Team
Our office connects private professional foundations with faculty to advance research, outreach and creative expression.
We connect private professional foundations with faculty by:
- Partnering with faculty and administrators across all of Northwestern to develop strategic and compelling foundation grant proposals
- Conducting custom prospect research for faculty around discrete, innovative projects
- Disseminating a biweekly funding opportunity newsletter
- Providing a list of current and anticipated foundation funding opportunities
- Working with faculty to plan foundation visits and advise on communication with foundations
- Please note: Some foundations prefer or require that communication is routed through OFR. View the restricted foundations list.
