Community Partnerships

Baylor University has a sustained interest in maintaining meaningful partnerships with social sector and government organizations as we all strive toward the greater good of our community. The Philanthropy & Public Service Program works with dozens of local organizations, and each of these partnerships operates on a belief in cooperation and shared value, belief that we can all work toward and imagine a greater good.

Our students bring much to the table that our community partners find beneficial: keen intellect, deep conviction, and a strong disposition toward giving, including transformational gifts through our grantmaking programs. Likewise, our community partners lend much to our students: experience in working toward solutions on community concerns, expertise in addressing human need, and abiding commitment to helping educate tomorrow's community and global leaders. If your organization is interested in cultivating this sort of partnership and shared value by working with our students or being considered for one of our grants, please contact Andy Hogue.
