The University Financing Foundation

The University Financing Foundation (TUFF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) operating foundation whose mission is to assist Institutions of education and research in the planning, development, and financing of facilities and equipment at below-market costs.  Unlike a passive foundation or public charity, TUFF actively partners with Institutions to help them achieve their academic goals, while maximizing the economic efficiency of their critical real estate projects.

They are clearly “same side of the table guys”
