NUFFO Request, Approval and Training Process

University partners who manage foundation-held funds use the NUFFO portal to access fund balance and other fund information, including information about donors, spending authorities, potential fund growth and more.

New users request access by completing a Fund Authority Form. Instructions for completion are found on the form. Applicants may:

  • request access to an entire group of funds or to replace a previous authority;
  • request access to a group of select funds, to extend authority or adjust viewing permissions; and
  • request removal of certain funds (individually or in groups) from their user profile.

Tip: To prevent delays, please ensure all necessary approval signatures are on the form prior to submitting it to the foundation.

The foundation processes the request. This requires a minimum of two weeks. Once approved, the foundation will send an email to new users with their credentials. Users whose access is being modified will receive an email confirming the request outlined on their Fund Authority Form.

Welcome, NUFFO user! You now have access to select fund and donor information. The information you need to know has been custom-curated for you.
