The Foundation Administrators Network (FAN) provides a venue for foundation leaders to discuss best business practices, learn more about each foundation’s mission, and explores ways to better engage the University.
FAN provides a venue for foundation administrators to discuss collaborative opportunities and optimize engagement with the University. Leaders from each foundation come together to discuss emerging opportunities and topics of mutual interest such as employment needs and special procurement offers.
At FAN Gatherings held three times each year, foundation leaders come together to discuss emerging opportunities and topics of mutual interest. At its first meeting in June 2016, representatives from University Procurement and Human Resources provided information on accessing job postings on HR’s Jobs@ website, current procurement contract pricing and credit card rebate discount programs. At its most recent meeting in February, representatives from the UVA Bookstore shared information regarding competitive pricing for marketing materials and etching services.
