FUNA has an Endowment Fund (""Endowment") consisting of a portfolio of assets, the return on which is used to fulfil its statutory purposes (grants for scholarships, research, etc.) and to maintain the purchasing power of the endowment itself.

The Endowment's goal of the Endowment, following a successful model of the most prestigious universities at international level, is to be a perpetual fundingsource of the purposes it serves and that both current and future generations will benefit from it.

The Endowment is composed of a "generic fund" that serves FUNA's general, unspecified purposes and other "modulated funds" that support different specific purposes at the will of the donor or board of trustees. None of the funds have their own assets, but all of them are managed jointly and participate, according to their percentage, in each and every one of the assets that make up the portfolio. This portfolio is managed by professionals with the appropriate financial advice, thus complying with the stipulations of the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV).

FUNA sends an annual report to donors who have set up a "modalised fund" at the Endowment, detailing the return earned, the amount spent and the current value of the fund.

The Foundation has an "guide investment policy" C by the board of trustees, which sets out the general criteria for the investment of its assets, so that prudence rules are followed and a clear risk and expected returns framework are established. The University's Investment Committee, made up of persons of recognised prestige in the financial sector, provides advice and ensures that guide is properly complied with.

This foundation was created with the sole purpose of helping the University of Navarra. It receives and administers donations destined to finance University projects. It channels the contributions of the Founding Members and also contributes some of its ordinary resources to promote and supports the sustainability of the projects.

Currently, the University of Navarra Foundation collaborates with the following educational and research projects:
