Serving the underserved and high-need students in our communities is among our highest priorities, and Charter Management Organizations (CMOs) face the additional challenge of managing to a large scale, requiring more and bigger loans. NFF has lent and leveraged millions of dollars to CMO-affiliated schools around the country including KIPP, Ascend, Thompson and Achievement First.
CMOs looking to expand their networks can benefit from NFF's considerable experience providing nonprofits with technical assistance in understanding their business model.
For large capital allotments, NFF Capital Partners provides highly customized Sustainable Enhancement Grant (SEGUE) services in order to generate philanthropic equity. Through NFF Capical Partners-supported philanthropic equity campaigns, the education advocacy organization Stand for Children raised $4 million. College Summit, an organization offering college access to underserved students, raised $21 million. YES Prep Public Schools, a CMO headquartered in Houston, TX, raised more than $22 million. All told, NFF Capital Partners campaigns have raised well over $300 million for nonprofit organizations of all kinds.
