The University seeks to maximize our philanthropic support and respect the processes of our funders. University Development staff are available to assist you in preparing proposals to non-governmental entities (private foundations, corporations and individuals), and can help you get official clearance to seek support. Please contact your college's development professional prior to making contact with any potential non-governmental funder.
