How Can We Help?

We are available to assist you through all stages of the funding process. Whether you’re searching for a funding partner, putting together a proposal or seeking assistance with a grant award you’ve received, our office has the institutional expertise and knowledge to help you seamlessly navigate to your goal.

Our office maintains relationships with many foundations and corporations, and we actively partner with faculty to identify appropriate prospects and connect you to funding opportunities, advise you on donor engagement and proposals, and provide guidance on stewardship and reporting.

Grant Applications
We can assist faculty with the strategic preparation and submission of foundation grant applications by interpreting funding guidelines, contacting funders for clarification and further information, and assisting with letters of inquiry and development of competitive proposals. We can also provide organizational information usually requested by funders, such as IRS letters, audited financial statements, and organizational budgets and information. Our office works closely with the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Research and the UCLA Office of Contract and Grant Administration and can assist in reviewing and negotiating award language with philanthropic foundations.

These resources can help you begin your funding search and proposal planning. Please reach out to our office at 310-794-2315 for help navigating these resources:
