Connecting Faculty with Foundation Sponsors

Foundations often fund research that is interdisciplinary, cutting-edge, or not yet funded by federal sources. In addition, many foundations have funding mechanisms specifically for early career investigators. Foundation Relations serves to strategically match Vanderbilt’s strengths with the priorities and missions of private foundations.

Services to Researchers:

  • Identify potential foundation funders
  • Create new relationships and steward existing partnerships with foundations
  • Contact foundations to determine interests in proposed projects and/or programs
  • Coordinate meeting for Deans and/or faculty with appropriate foundation representatives

Please contact for foundation relations support.
