For Foundations

Partnering with Georgetown

Across our 10 schools, Georgetown University’s distinguished faculty pursue innovative solutions to the challenges of the day. Grounded in our Jesuit tradition and located in Washington, DC, we are a passionate learning community eager to partner with foundations to accomplish together what we could not do alone.

Georgetown partners with foundations like yours to drive impact through teaching, cutting-edge research, and community outreach. Together we achieve shared goals and bring about lasting, positive change.

The Office of Institutional Partnerships (OIP) welcomes opportunities to connect and build relationships with foundation representatives like you.

Your foundation can partner with Georgetown in many ways. See our Called to Be website to see some of the specific programs and priorities you can support. You can also contact the OIP team at to discuss your specific philanthropic priorities.

OIP works with foundations in many ways:

  1. Connect. Introduce you to faculty, researchers, and academic leaders
  2. Gather. Arrange your visits to campus, as well as in-person and virtual meetings
  3. Match. Collaborate with you to identify the strategic priorities and programs at Georgetown that match your organization’s mission
  4. Facilitate. Help Georgetown partners navigate your grant application and stewardship processes
