Foundation Relations

Our team is here to facilitate your partnership with Notre Dame.


The Foundation Relations team aims to build strong, lasting relationships between foundations and the University of Notre Dame to advance our mutual goals. We work to find alignment between your foundation's mission and philanthropic interests with the University's programs and research. Our goal is to forge partnerships that create positive change in the world.

Whether your relationship with the University is well-established or nascent, we are here to:

  • identify faculty conducting research in line with your organization's interests
  • find Notre Dame programs doing the types of work your organization supports
  • provide technical assistance to navigate University policies
  • arrange meetings with faculty
  • facilitate visits to campus for lectures, conferences, and meetings
