Grant Seeker Resources

The Corporate and Foundation Relations team is a central resource for UMass Chan faculty, researchers and scientists.

We are focused on building strong, ongoing relationships between investigators and philanthropic partners that share a similar vision in the field of study. By functioning as the primary contact with foundations’ and philanthropic institutions’ officers and trustees, we help secure private funding for your projects.

Our staff is available to assist with: 

  • Research of potential funding sources
  • Development of solicitation strategies
  • Assistance in gathering required materials 
  • Professional packaging of proposals
  • Stewardship: continuous communication, award acknowledgments, progress reports and site visits

We also provide guidance for the application process, from letters of intent and through the final stages of award agreements. Importantly, we are able to make personal contacts with program officers within the private philanthropic sector. Many private funders rely on relationships rather than requests for proposals (RFPs) to channel appropriate projects to their attention. We can help strategize the identification, cultivation and development of relationships leading to an invitation to apply.

Please contact the Corporate and Foundation Relations team in the Office of Advancement if you need assistance.
