Loans & Financing

Nonprofits are the cornerstones of our communities, providing vital services that address our most pressing social problems and strengthen our neighborhoods. With their varied business models and unique operating environments, nonprofits need a financing partner that can appreciate their particular financial situations and provide solutions to meet their needs. As a federally recognized Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) with more than 35 years of experience financing nonprofits, NFF tailors loans based on each client’s unique financial story, plans and capacity.

Our loans help organizations:
• Purchase, build or renovate a facility, including leasehold improvements
• Purchase equipment and technology necessary to the organization's operation
• Bridge payment of receivables from government grants or capital campaigns
• Expand programs or grow an earned income or social venture
• Manage working capital needs with a line of credit

Through consulting, group learning and education services, we provide nonprofit managers with a variety of tools to help them assess their organization’s financial health, communicate needs, and understand the financial impact of decisions on programs and mission at any stage of their development.

Our core one-on-one consulting provides in-depth technical assistance to nonprofit managers to diagnose their organization's financial situation, help manage areas of financial weaknesses and take better advantage of financial strengths and opportunities. We begin by assessing an organization's current situation and needs, and then develop a work plan to help managers better understand, interpret and use their financial data to make well-informed decisions. After helping organizations implement new financial tools and practices, we work with leadership staff to plan next steps towards meeting future goals.

We employ a variety of analysis, all catered to the needs of our clients:
• Financial analysis to evaluate an organization’s financial condition over a multi-year period to shed light on trends, challenges and opportunities.
• Financial planning to help nonprofits understand the practical revenue and expense dynamics of each major program, forecast their cash inflows and outflows over time, or evaluate how best- and worst- case scenarios could impact them.
• Complex strategic planning, from determining feasibility to final implementation and forecasting (includes preparing for mergers and collaborations, strategic realignment, and systems replacement planning).
