Duke University's Office of Foundation Relations initiates and coordinates relationships that support Duke's teaching, research, and service mission. Working with administrators, faculty, and development staff, our staff provides expertise, services, and tools to successfully connect the university with foundations and corporate philanthropy.

We also work closely with the Office of Research Support to obtain necessary university approvals before proposals are submitted. Download and view the proposal submission checklist (.doc format).
