We Fund Pioneering Research
We Invest in the Scientific Workforce
To ensure we support the highest quality and most relevant research, we place limits on what we can fund.
We do not fund the following types of groups, activities or events:
We do not support organizations that have a policy of discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), sex, gender expression or transition, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, whether the discrimination policies are written or are in practice. Our policy is to not provide grants to any organization that maintains such a policy.
*We only support what directly aligns with our priorities and is used to inform our programming.
We do not accept unsolicited proposals. However, we accept unsolicited concepts through our Submit Your Research Concept website portal, where interested parties can submit their research ideas.
We welcome partners interested in sponsoring a FFAR event.
We consider sponsoring an external event on a case-by-case basis. We have two options for participating in an external event:
We may consider providing a voluntary contribution of goods or services that may qualify as a charitable deduction for the organization receiving the gift. Any gifts-in-kind from FFAR must meet a specific line item in the program, project or event budget for which it is intended. For example, we could help promote the event by electronic communication (email, newsletter or website).
We may consider providing a non-financial, reciprocal sponsorship with corresponding benefits to an organization for one of FFAR’s events, such as Foster Our Future. In return, we would receive an equivalent sponsorship value with benefits from the same organization at their event.
