NFF is an invaluable partner to nonprofits and funders looking to build the capacity of nonprofits. We are proud to partner with NFF to continue to look at innovative and effective means to sustain and strengthen the nonprofit sector.
[NFF] tells the public, the news media, policymakers, and nonprofits themselves what they need to know about how our communities are faring; how nonprofits are better or less able to address critical problems; and whether governments are successful or harmful in partnering with charitable organizations to address community needs.
[NFF] reached out to help ICEF at a time when very few would. During our development you stood side by side with us as we evolved into the organization we are today. We are now able to financially stand on our own. For your help in making this happen, we will be eternally grateful.
NFF changed my life and the Painted Bride's capacity. They helped the Bride find its right size in our staffing model so that we could build cash reserves. They gave the Board a deeper understanding of our financial position, how we got there, and how we can get out. Ultimately funders have greater respect for us and we operate in a less stressful way.
