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.

TUFF brings a sophisticated financing plan to the table when you deal with them.
