Board Opportunity Fund

The UC Santa Cruz Foundation provides seed funds to initiate or support short-term campus projects through the Board Opportunity Fund (BOF), established in January 2008.

The Foundation accepts proposals that allow UCSC faculty and staff to take advantage of unique opportunities to support a strategic project aligned with academic priorities. This may be an incentive for further fundraising or a vehicle for raising awareness and visibility for the campus. 

Applicants may apply without a Trustee sponsor, and the Foundation office will seek to identify one. For more information about the Board Opportunity Fund, please contact the Foundation office at (831) 459-4339 or Click here to download the application.
