This year, UMB reviewed and updated fundraising procedures for corporation and foundation awards. A new document found here details:
1. When a proposal to a corporation and foundation should be routed through Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA)
2. Roles and responsibilities of UMB teams assigned to support processing of corporate and foundation awards
3. Which stakeholders should be contacted and informed at various stages of proposal development, outreach, and award notification and management
While many procedures remain the same, some changes have been made to improve communication in a virtual environment and ensure awards are processed and managed through the correct entity — UMB or UMB Foundation. If you would like to attend an informational session to learn more about corporate or foundation fundraising, or to review these procedures, contact CFRDirector@umaryland.edu.
