Centrally Managed Foundations

There are a handful of restricted foundations that should only be approached for funding through or with clearance from Foundation Relations, at the request of either the foundation’s leadership or the university’s. These are foundations that expect funding discussions to center on institutional priorities and that in most cases have explicitly asked that funding requests carry the endorsement of the president and be conveyed through Foundation Relations. Thus, funding requests to the following foundations are restricted. Clearance to apply for funding from these foundations must be requested from the Office of Foundation Relations prior to submitting a letter of inquiry or proposal.
Please contact Tristan Barako, AVP for Foundation Relations, to coordinate your request.
