The Office of Foundation Relations (OFR) applies its expertise on foundations to assist Northwestern faculty and administrators across all schools and units who seek funding from private foundations. OFR helps faculty members secure foundation funding for their projects by identifying potential funding sources, advising on strategy, and assisting in the development of compelling proposals. To advance the University’s productive relationships with these funders, OFR works in partnership with offices across the university to coordinate and track all Northwestern foundation activity. On behalf of NU, OFR manages a portfolio of more than 500 foundations that give to higher education. Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact OFR before applying to any private foundation and should be aware that for some specific restricted foundations OFR requires notification prior to any contact.
