Fund Numbers - What The First Three Digits Tell You

This document describes the numbers used to identify the funding sources for campus funds.

Every university expenditure is associated with a specific fund and account number. Funds are identified by three numbers that associate specific payments to specific funding sources.

EXAMPLE: A supply order for a federally-funded research project would indicate that the order would be paid for using 144-XXXXXXX. The "144" at the beginning of the sequence indicates that this is a project associated with a Federal grant or contract. The "XXXXXXX" are the seven numbers and/or or letters associated with that specific project.


101- State tax, Federal indirect cost, and tuition funding allocated for the purpose of education and related programs.

104- Funding from UW-Extension used for off campus credit and non-credit activities.

128- Cost recovery funding used by units selling goods or services, both externally and internally.

133- Non-Federal grants and contracts.

135-VCRGE(aka Grad School).

136- Cost recovery outreach funding mechanism.

144- Federal grants and contract funding.
