Get started

The University of Washington’s Corporate Relations team can help you build fruitful relationships with companies. Working with industry is quite different from working with foundations or federal funding agencies. Our team can answer questions, introduce you to companies, and help you structure your partnerships with companies.

Working with corporations

Every year foundations award more than $100 million in gifts and grants to the University of Washington to support research and education. Foundations fill an important niche, often leveraging their resources to make catalytic impact where other funders won’t venture.
