Enable Foundations to Further Meet Their Missions

Our team provides connection points for foundations and other grantmakers to University programs and projects. We explore, establish and sustain partnerships that strategically align donors’ priorities with community needs, which in turn benefit UT Dallas and most importantly, the people, neighborhoods and regions impacted by these investments.

Collaborate to Develop Compelling Proposals

Our team also serves UT Dallas faculty, program directors, staff and University leadership. Depending on the level of need, we can help develop strong, compelling grant proposals, budgets and impact reports that are comprehensive and outcome-focused.
