What we do
We invest in communities through customized financing that strengthens mission-driven organizations, with 50%+ of our 2021 lending going to nonprofits led by people of color.
We equip social-sector leaders to make financial decisions that best serve their missions, with 50%+ of our 2021 consulting services dedicated to nonprofits led by people of color.
Using NFF’s change capital framework, we developed visualization tools to help our donors and funders understand the impact of investing in our 25th anniversary campaign as we scale up to meet the urgent needs of the moment. Your learning series was so helpful as we thought through this – it would have been much harder to illustrate without the tools you offered.
The refinancing support from NFF allowed for us to secure funding from NYC to create our new home. Now the youth we serve can look forward to a large, beautiful space equal to their aspirations.
It’s hard to attribute our growth to one single factor. But having NFF as our thought partner has been invaluable.
