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 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 UC Santa Cruz. 

All applications must have a Foundation Trustee Sponsor and be approved by academic senior leadership to be considered. For more information about the Board Opportunity Fund please contact the Foundation office at (831) 459-4339 or
