Private Funding Agencies

Relationship building is the cornerstone to securing extramural funding from private foundations - it takes a team effort. Research Development works closely with the Development Office to help build these relationships.

If you identify a private foundation as a potential sponsor, we ask that you contact Janice Hartoch-Taylor,, Director of Foundation Relations in order to develop strategies for approaching these agencies.
