Foundation Relations

The foundation relations program aims to increase the amount of private foundation grants made to Payne Theological Seminary academic programs, outreach and special projects. We work closely with the seminary’s dean, faculty, and President’s office to provide various foundation-related services to the seminary. These activities range from identifying foundation funding opportunities to assisting with project and proposal development, conducting foundation site-visits, providing grantsmanship training, facilitating the submission of grant proposals, and acting as stewards of grants we have received.

We seek to provide a service that is both strategic and coordinated. We assist in taking great ideas and making them into fundable projects in partnership with foundations whose funding initiatives align with the seminary’s strengths.
