"Nonprofit Finance Fund gave us a transparent template to monitor our finanical status that included a contingency plan that focused on balancing income and expense at pre-determined milestones. We are more engaged and act quickly to minimize the "crisis" mode of doing business."

NFF workshops are a dynamic exploration of how nonprofits and funders can improve the ways they use money, so that missions can thrive.

Capital Partners brokers and facilitates capital campaigns of $5 million or greater, so that nonprofit executives can focus on the day-to-day running of their organizations.

  • Systems Replacement Plan (SRP) is a detailed review of a nonprofit's building systems. NFF consultants create a 20-year SRP that forecasts expected timing and costs of replacements and repairs, helping organizations better plan for future facility-related capital needs.
"Wow! That was just one of the many positive reactions of our members to Karla Salazar's presentation on non-profit financial presentations at our recent meeting. Her comments were insightful and very helpful for agencies striving to present the most effectively to both Boards and donors. Her presentation was a great combination of intelligence, enthusiasm and insight. It was one of the most helpful presentations our group has ever heard."
Scott Evans
President, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Orange County, CA chapter
