Office of Foundation Relations

Connecting RIT with Foundations to Create and Expand Impact

The Office of Foundation Relations (OFR) connects RIT leadership, faculty, and staff with private, family, and corporate foundations to advance the University’s mission, priorities, research, and programs.

Our Vision is to generate and cultivate transformative foundation partnerships for RIT through the development of strategic, mutually-beneficial, and long-term relationships to realize future goals.

OFR will work with you to significantly increase your likelihood of success. We will guide you through unique Foundation requirements and RIT internal submission processes, while providing expertise and support for relationship and proposal development and reporting/stewardship.
