About Us

The mission of the Office of Foundation Relations (OFR) is to optimize philanthropic support to the Institute from foundations.

To that end, our work involves the following:

  • developing and managing relationships with a broad range of foundations;
  • being aware of and sharing information about relevant foundation opportunities;
  • working with senior leadership, faculty, and administrators to develop and implement strategies for securing foundation support;
  • staying on top of trends in the field.
