The spirit of co-creation and learning between NFF and our Oregon nonprofit partners has resulted in capacity-building work customized to our nonprofits' needs and delivered in a way that is truly relevant and accessible to a range of organizations.
Like many arts administrators, I was trained in the arts, not administration. Professional development opportunities like those at NFF are essential to informing a fiscally responsible, healthy organization.
The capacity-building assistance we have received has been extraordinarily consistent, available, and productive in helping to shape our thinking, strategies, business plan, budget development, and grant-seeking activities.
NFF is a leader at the intersection of economic development and community finance, and I've learned a lot just by being in the presence of others who appreciate critical thinking, robust conversation, and the sharing of new ideas.
We received intensive training from NFF that was earth-shifting for us. It moved us from 1-year to 3-year financial planning, and changed how we look at things – from hopeful to certain. You can have different conversations when you can be honest and thoughtful about your cash flow.
