Grant funding and partnerships provide important financial resources for research, arts and cultural programs, state-of-the-art equipment, facility upgrades, scholarships, curricular development, community engagement, and other initiatives. Grants play a significant role in helping to create opportunities for new projects that complement Keystone’s mission.
Keystone College builds and stewards beneficial relationships with government, foundation, and corporate partners that support common goals through project-specific funding.
Many private and public donors have demonstrated their commitment to helping Keystone achieve its educational goals through the award of financial resources. Keystone values this philanthropic support and the confidence and trust that it represents.
Faculty and staff can help secure funding.
The Office of Sponsored Programs and Grants provides assistance to Keystone faculty and staff in identifying and seeking financial resources that enhance current programming, supplement specific operational costs and create new projects that complement Keystone’s mission and strategic plan. All public, private, corporate and foundation requests must be reviewed and approved by the Office of Sponsored Programs and Grants prior to submission. This helps to eliminate duplication of requests to our funders, provides an opportunity for you to obtain assistance with the development of the application, and assures our grant files are complete and current.
If you are interested in identifying grant funding sources please review the Grant Preparation and Submission Policy & Procedures for more information about the grant process.
Solicitation of In-Kind Gifts
In addition to grants, many businesses and corporations are excellent resources for in-kind donations, such as donations of supplies, new or used equipment, or services. This is an effective means of obtaining non-cash support to enhance programming, supplement specific operational costs or create projects that complement Keystone’s mission.
Faculty or staff that have a business or corporate contact that the IA office could approach for a donation can complete the Solicitation of In-Kind Gifts form to assist in the development of the request.
