For Foundations

Office of Foundation Relations

According to Giving USA 2015, private foundations gave more to higher education than any other single funding source. In particular, family foundations are a large and important part of all foundation giving every year. Private foundations can support innovative research and educational programs, as well as laboratory equipment, scholarships and fellowships, and campus infrastructure. Caltech's Office of Foundation Relations works to understand foundations' missions and giving priorities, and proactively explores areas of synergy with Caltech's unique strengths.
