At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the Office of Foundation Relations supports the development of mutually beneficial relationships between private philanthropic foundations and myriad campus programs, projects, and activities.  To accomplish this, the Office of Foundation Relations provides the following services:

  • Organizing, planning, and hosting visits between private foundation staff and campus leadership, faculty, and staff; such interactions can occur both on-campus and in the community
  • Researching and connecting private foundation interests and program priorities with appropriate and well-aligned campus philanthropic opportunities
  • Ensuring proper stewardship of private foundation support through major recognition opportunities and fulfillment of specified grant reporting requirements
  • Coordinating and prioritizing approaches to private philanthropic foundations to avoid simultaneous, multiple grant requests from the university
