About Us

The Sponsored Programs Foundation (SPF) is an auxiliary organization at Cal Poly Humboldt under the direction and control of a Board of Directors. SPF is a California not-for-profit, public benefit corporation, having been incorporated in 1952. It is exempt from taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code and under Section 23701 of the California Revenue and Taxation Code.

SPF's primary mission is to provide the campus community with professional and accessible Pre- and Post-award grant and contract services. SPF administers virtually all externally-funded grants/contracts and submits proposals to external funding agencies on behalf of Cal Poly Humboldt. 

Our staff works to facilitate efforts that support our students through involvement in research that enhances the likelihood that our students will graduate and strive for a higher degree, will achieve at the highest levels, and will remember Humboldt as their starting point. 

As part of the Office of Research, SPF is also located in the Student Business Services Building, Room 427. SPF can be reached by phone at (707) 826-4189 or by e-mail at hsuf@humboldt.edu.
