Guide for Foundation Partnerships

Geisel Windows

The office of Corporate and Foundation Relations at UC San Diego manages the university's relationships with private foundations to advance the university's goals, priorities and its missions of teaching, research and public service. The office works to align private foundation funding with campus priorities and promote funding opportunities to faculty. We strive to establish and maintain partnerships with our foundation funders through effective cultivation, solicitation and stewardship.

While the CFR office is ready to assist faculty with foundation funding research, the links below provide current opportunities to get you started.
