Private Foundations

 

Private foundations provide resources to fund unique research and programmatic needs. The Office of Foundation Relations serves as a point of contact between private foundations and WSU.  The Foundation Relations team can help with identifying potential partners, facilitate introductions to foundation representatives, promote assistance navigating the internal process and provide project and proposal development assistance.  Through the WSU Foundation, our office can provide a means for WSU programs to apply for funding from organizations that require a 501(c)3 non-profit status.

 

Contact the Office of Foundation Relations at cfr@wsu.edu.
