Why we're here
We all care passionately about the important work we’re all doing. Yet the numbers of people and communities who need help, and their needs, keep growing. So do the hoops and hurdles that stand between commitment and impact.
NFF has always brought capital to where it's needed most for social good. In 1980, our loans helped nonprofits deal with the high energy costs of double-digit inflation. Today, we continue to evolve with the needs of our society and our sector, helping nonprofits and their supporters be financially stable and nimble so they can explore opportunities, weather storms, and make use of data and ideas.
New ways emerge daily for nonprofits and funders to partner differently to get the stronger results that all want, need, and deserve. We are continually inspired by your innovation and commitment. We know this isn't easy. But it absolutely can be done.
