Areas of Focus
Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre
"When Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre started to work with NFF seventeen years ago, the organization had posted operating deficits for many years in a row, audits were issued with ongoing concerns, and the future looked shaky at best. Seventeen years later, the organization is consistently posting operating surpluses and working to build a robust balance sheet. I cannot speak highly enough about NFF. NFF staff are true capacity builders and leave organizations with an enhanced understanding of the role of finance in service to mission."
