Foundation Relations

The Foundation Relations team works with administrators, faculty, and staff of Stanford University School of Medicine to identify and promote opportunities for engagement with private professional foundations. We provide assistance with each phase of the proposal process: from identifying and qualifying foundations to planning, developing, and coordinating solicitations, arranging site visits, and reporting and stewardship.

Medical Center Development's Foundation Relations team works closely with the School of Medicine's Research Management Group and the University's Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations to ensure coordination and compliance with University policies and guidelines.
