Some foundations and corporations are centrally managed at GW, and faculty will need to be in touch with the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations for a considered conversation in advance of outreach or submitting a letter of inquiry or proposal to these funders. Please contact Susan Boerstling (for foundation inquires) or Joe Matope (for corporate or corporate foundation inquires) at [email protected].
Foundations and corporations are centrally managed for different reasons. Sometimes it’s at the request of the company or foundation to have a single office as a point of contact. Or, it may be because university leadership is in active conversation with the leadership of a foundation or corporation around a strategic institutional priority. Or, a proposal requires the endorsement of the president or provost, or there could be a limit on the number of GW applications.
Thank you for your cooperation.
