The mission of the Office of Foundation Relations (OFR) is to serve DePaul University and its foundation partners in establishing and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships. This is achieved by working with university faculty, staff and administration to promote academic, research, scholarship and institutional innovations, aligning these projects with the goals of the respective private funding organizations.
The OFR coordinates and maintains DePaul's working relationships with all private professional foundations.
Over the years, the OFR has cultivated meaningful collaborations and mutually beneficial long-term partnerships with philanthropic organizations for research, programming and institutional initiatives throughout the United States, especially Chicago-area foundations.
