  • Loans and lines of credit for facilities and working capital, all tailored to meet the needs of nonprofit organizations at competitive rates and terms.
  • New Markets Tax Credit Loans offer tax credits for private investors in exchange for capital investment in facilities in low-income communities.
  • Nonprofit Business Analysis (NBA) is an in-depth financial analysis and consultation that clarifies an organization's financial condition, helping management balance financial considerations with program goals and better articulate financial needs to funders.
  • Financial Leadership Clinic combines an educational seminar on nonprofit finance with individual coaching and peer-based learning. In the two-day Clinic, four to six small-to-midsized nonprofits working in a common sector learn to read and interpret their financial documents, understand the dynamics of their business models, and identify and communicate the specific financial needs and goals of their organizations.
  • Workshops and Coaching expertly guide nonprofits and funders in exploring how management decisions and capital structure affect an organization's mission and finances. 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 helps nonprofit organizations attract the shareholder-like investment they need to support significant transformations. 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.
