Our Vision & Mission
We envision a world where capital and expertise come together
to create a more just and vibrant society.
We unlock the potential of mission-driven organizations through
tailored investments, strategic advice, and accessible insights.
NFF makes a difference when our clients and partners make a difference. We are surrounded by organizations with incredible aspirations, resources and vision. Only through unlocking their potential can we contribute to making our society more just and vibrant. We work with mission-driven organizations. The vast majority of these organizations are incorporated as nonprofits. But we work with any organization focused around a social mission that contributes to a more just and vibrant society. We embrace the diversity of approaches that committed people are taking to promoting social good.
What will it take to unlock the potential of these organizations?
- We make investments that are tailored to an organization’s and/or system’s needs. Different organizations need different forms of capital in different ways as they evolve. We structure investment products to meet a wider range of capital needs rather than constrain ourselves to working only with clients who fit one or two narrow investment criteria.
- We offer strategic advice because organizations facing fundamentally new realities require more than just financial insight and analysis. They need to identify and implement new ways of operating. And our strategic advice must inform how systems of finance and service delivery can evolve, not just how individual organizations operate more efficiently within unsustainable systems.
- We derive insights from our on-the-ground work and communicate them to social sector leaders in accessible ways that will ultimately influence what they do to connect money and mission more effectively.
