Foundation and Corporate Relations

The Office of Foundation Relations promotes mutually beneficial relationships with private foundations in support of Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. We provide a central point of contact for private foundations, connecting them to our dynamic faculty and diverse programs of national prominence.

For faculty, we are the primary Cedars-Sinai office to ensure approaches to foundations are strategic, coordinated, and initiated appropriately. We also assist faculty in identifying private funding sources, developing competitive funding ideas and proposals, and advancing relationships with our philanthropic partners.

We invite you to contact us regarding specific programs and collaborative opportunities that may be of interest to your organization or to arrange a visit. We welcome the opportunity to show you our world-class medical center and research campus.
