Grant seeker resources

The Corporate and Foundation Relations team is a central resource for UMMS researchers and clinicians

We are focused on building strong, continuous relationships between you, the investigator, and partners that share a similar vision in your field of study.  By functioning as the primary contact with foundations and corporations 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 material 
  • Professional packaging of proposals
  • Stewardship: continuous communication, award acknowledgments, progress reports and site visits

We also provide you with 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 sector. Many private funders rely on relationships rather than requests for proposals (RFPs) to channel appropriate projects to their attention. CFR can help strategize the identification, cultivation and development of relationships leading to an invitation to apply.

Your success is our priority.
