Foundation Relations

The Foundation Relations arm of the Development Office is available to assist faculty and staff with identifying prospects for specific projects, proposal development and submissions to private foundations. Deadlines vary according to foundation guidelines.

Over the past year successful proposals have been developed for medical research; autism research and services; scholarships; fellowships; environmental conservation projects; aviation, art and STEM camps; business development and entrepreneurial programs; and engineering education.

For further information, or for assistance with obtaining funding from foundations, please contact Sara Smith, Major Gift Officer for Foundation Relations at 321-674-8259 or email
