Foundation Funding

  • Development Support/Foundation Funding
    • A development-informed model is used to identify and approach foundations that fund research and programs but do not issue RFPs. This model is predicated on communication between the faculty member and the organization or foundation, which often takes place over a period of time. The faculty member researches an organization's funding priorities and then makes contact with a program officer to discuss his/her particular project. If given the "go-ahead," the faculty member then produces a proposal.
