Foundation Relations

Foundation Relations


Foundation Relations facilitates and orchestrates the creation and maintenance of strategic partnerships between Villanova University and private, philanthropic foundations, with the ultimate goal of securing grants to support the mission, Strategic Plan and institutional priorities of the University.

Foundation funds are raised for core capital and programmatic needs in Villanova’s five undergraduate colleges: the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering, the College of Nursing, the College of Professional Studies and the Villanova School of Business, as well as for Falvey Memorial Library, the Office for Mission and Ministry, the Office of Student Life, Financial Aid and other areas of the University where appropriate.

The director advises the President, deans, faculty, administrators and University Advancement staff regarding key foundations and also provides planning and research assistance throughout the entire cultivation, proposal submission and stewardship process.
