Lynx User Access Guiding Principles
Lynx is a specialized system designed to support the work of fundraising and engagement. Our first priority for access is for fundraising and engagement roles aligned with PAE strategies and priorities, centrally and in campus units.
We assign access by role, lean on central and campus services to complement access, and ask for units and departments to work cooperatively to consolidate users when feasible, as it is a shared commitment of time and resources to provide access, training, and support and for users to learn and use Lynx.
As members of the Lynx community, we start from trust and operate with a high degree of accountability to constituents in the use of their data. All Lynx users are required to provide an advancement business purpose to gain access, abide by a user policy, and participate in ongoing training.
Accessing Lynx involves commitment from users and the foundation. We appreciate the time this takes for users and aim for efficiency and to keep improving the user access experience. We work collaboratively to meet the needs of users and constituents.
