Foundations and Corporations

Support from foundations and corporations is vital to Northwest Nazarene University's continuing commitment to its vision of a more excellent way and to the values of transformation, truth, community and service. The office of Foundations and Corporate Relations seeks to expand and deepen the University's relationships with philanthropic foundations and corporate partners. Among the University's funding priorities are scholarships, academic facilities and unrestricted endowment support.

Services provided by the Development Officer of Foundations and Corporate Relations include:

  • Building relationships with foundations and corporate partners.
  • Supporting the NNU community by identifying foundation and corporate funding sources for priority programs and preparing grant proposals.
  • Acting as a liaison between foundation and corporate entities and the academic and administrative divisions of the University.
  • Administration and monitoring of training in Responsible Conduct of Research.

We are grateful to donors who support the University and its mission of a quality liberal arts education. Foundations and corporate partners can make an important impact at the University and throughout the region by ensuring that the University continues to produce competent leaders and active community members. We would be happy to help your corporation or foundation fulfill its philanthropic goals.
