Nonprofit Finance Fund


Loan programs provide loans for nonprofit organizations lacking access to conventional capital. Loans ranging from $100,000 to $2 million are used for costs related to new construction, leasehold improvements, acquisition, renovation, working capital and equipment. NFF also received a NMTC allocation that it is using to support community facility projects in distressed communities.

Credit enhancement provides subsidized loans and loan guarantees to the severely-undercapitalized childcare sector through NFF's Child Care Expansion Consortium (CHEX). This program has provided $3.8 million of enhancement for projects exceeding $8.4 million.

Asset-building services are provided through Building for the FutureSM (BFF), an NFF financial tool that builds the financial strength of participating community-based nonprofits. BFF allows these organizations to build assets in building reserves, cash reserves and endowments. In the process, they learn to prepare for unforeseen emergencies, manage constraints on capital and cash flow and develop a better understanding of their true costs.

Consultative services help organizations better understand their business model and financial condition, learning to analyze and interpret financial statements in a way that tells the financial story accurately and comprehensively. Our financial consultations help nonprofit managers make decisions that strengthen their organization's financial health and support effective program delivery.

Capital Partners helps nonprofits design strategic capital campaigns of $5 million or more to raise growth capital. Our Sustainable Enhancement Grant (SEGUE) methodology provides nonprofits and their philanthropic investors with a complete plan for attracting and managing these growth capital funds.
