Information for Faculty and Staff
The Office of Strategic Partnerships aims to increase the amount of private foundation grants and corporate contributions made to Butler University's academic programs, outreach and special projects.
We work closely with the Butler Instititue for Reasearch & Scholarship (BIRS) to provide various external funding services to the University. These activities range from identifying corporate and foundation funding opportunities to assisting with project and proposal development, conducting foundation site visits, facilitating the submission of funding proposals, and acting as stewards of gifts we have received. Please visit the BIRS website early when seeking funding for more information on the external funding process.
