The Office of Foundation Relations exists to help coordinate institutional relationships with Indiana University and private philanthropic foundations, involving identification, cultivation and stewardship.

We are a system-wide resource for those within the Indiana University community seeking support from nongovernmental organizations for research, teaching, and other programs. Our team provides assistance to faculty, administrators, and center directors in all divisions and schools within Indiana University.

Private foundations exist to bring attention and resources to problems and challenges locally, nationally, and internationally. As an international organization with influence across the state and around the world, Indiana University is in a position to partner with private foundations to help address the grand challenges of our age.
