Notice of Intent
WHY IS THERE A NOTICE OF INTENT PROCESS?
The purpose of the OHSU Foundation notice of intent process is to coordinate OHSU's fundraising efforts, so that we maximize the available resources. Submitting notice to the OHSU Foundation helps to ensure that OHSU's faculty members have the best chances of being awarded grants and not being excluded from competition because of institutional miscommunication. This process allows us to honor the guidelines of corporations and private foundations interested in making gifts and grants to OHSU and helps us build better relationships with our funders.
HOW CAN THIS PROCESS HELP YOU?
The OHSU Foundation Office of Corporate & Foundation Relations can help:
- Ensure that multiple investigators or competing applications are not submitted concurrently
- Provide comprehensive information about previously submitted and funded proposals
