Information for Foundations

In Foundation and Corporate Philanthropy, we connect foundations to the University of Kentucky’s colleges, programs and researchers; inform foundations about the university’s priorities and goals; and foster and strengthen the university's philanthropic relationships with foundations to accomplish mutual goals, including advancing UK’s academic, research and public outreach initiatives. We provide foundations with the information and resources they need to make a lasting impact. As a result, foundations have generously supported student success, innovative research and programming at UK.
