For the University Community

The Corporate and Foundation Relations Department is available to assist UK faculty, staff and students with consultation, proposal development and review, and clearance for certain restricted corporations and foundations.

This department conducts ongoing research to identify the right mission–driven foundations for each grant request. The office also maintains and coordinates relationships with many foundation and corporate officers and will assist with the grant–seeking process from research through proposal development and presentation.

Many companies and foundations have restrictions on the number of requests they will entertain from a single institution. In those cases, the Corporate and Foundation Relations staff will work with the Proposal Development Office to coordinate campus–wide submissions and provide the appropriate clearance when necessary.

Contact our staff for assistance with:

  • Grant research and consultation
  • Proposal development and review
  • Interdisciplinary proposal coordination
  • Assistance with making appropriate contacts
  • Clearance for restricted foundations
