NFF exists to fill the unmet needs of our clients, and ultimately, the communities they serve. As their needs evolve in a turbulent world, so must we evolve. We are in the middle of a flexible five-year strategy that guides both our core work and the areas where are adapting to respond to our clients’ changing environment.

We center our work on the three pillars in our mission: Tailored Investments, Strategic Advice, and Accessible Insights. Our strategy focuses on growing the scale and impact of our core operations while developing new products and approaches that help build bridges between our clients and their opportunities—and challenges. It calls on us to increase our lending, provide deeper consulting work in multi-year initiatives, and to better measure and understand the impact of our work, among many other things.
