Building lasting support and collaborations
Welcome to the Office of Foundation and Corporate Relations
What We Provide
Our office is a campus-wide resource for those within the UChicago community seeking support from non-governmental, organizational donors for research, teaching, and other programs. Our staff members provide assistance to faculty, administrators and center directors in all divisions and schools with program development, identification and cultivation of funding prospects, proposal writing, organizing site visits, preparing grant reports, and maintaining relationships with major funders during and after the grant cycle. For the specific services and resources available to the campus community, see our page For the University Community.
As a first stop for companies and foundations seeking to engage with the University, our office provides guidance on University programs, facilitates new relationships, and coordinates existing partnerships. For more about corporate engagement with the University, see our page For Corporations.
