We partner with a number of other offices at BU.

When to Contact Us

Please let Foundation Relations know about any contacts you have with a foundation, even if the relationship does not necessarily involve grant or gift funds. While we encourage as many people as possible to develop direct relationships, we do need to have a complete picture of the University’s overall relationships, and occasionally to help manage simultaneous requests of the same foundation. Recognizing that each circumstance is different, we will discuss with you ways in which we can, or even should, be involved. Sometimes, we will simply provide you with any insight we might have, including the foundation’s historical relationship with the University.

The easiest way to contact Foundation Relations is through this form.

We have offices on the Charles River Campus at 595 Commonwealth Ave., and on the Medical Campus at 72 East Concord St.
