Do You Know People at Foundations?

A very important resource for Skidmore is grant funding from private and corporate foundations. Direct contacts with foundation personnel often play a key role in the awarding of foundation grants. If you know foundation board members or officers, or would like to discuss Skidmore’s work with foundations, please contact Barry Pritzker, director of foundation and corporate relations, at 518-580-5650 or pritzker@skidmore.edu.
