"NFF's workshops helped us come to grips with how big our project really was and how much planning there was to do. There aren't many organizations like NFF. They understand that nonprofits have special needs and they address them."Terry DeLancey, Executive Director
Agassiz Neighborhood Council (ANC) is a community center that provides arts education to children and adults in the Agassiz neighborhood of Cambridge, Massachusetts, advocates for community improvements, and organizes a free performance series to area school children. Since its inception, the Council was housed in a building that it rented from Harvard University. When the University wished to sell the building in 2002, the Council decided to purchase its home. NFF's $250,000 loan helped ANC purchase the building and make improvements. In 2009, NFF provided ANC with a second loan to finance the construction of a new visual arts center on the property.
NFF works to create a strong, well-capitalized and durable nonprofit sector that connects money to mission effectively, supporting the highest aspirations and most generous impulses of people and communities.
