Purpose & Grant Making
The Nonprofit Future Fund (NFF) was founded as a division of Trust Funds For All Children, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The purpose of NFF is to provide nonprofit organizations with the funding needed to evaluate and expand the use of new technologies that will enable them to accelerate the fulfillment of their charters.
NFF uses its grant programs to enable nonprofit organizations to operate at the forefront of technology adoption while minimizing their financial exposure. This innovation allows them to improve their operations faster than traditional nonprofit budget cycles allow.
NFF offers two types of grants:
- Igniter Grants: co-investment grants designed to pilot critical technologies and related services in nonprofit organizations.
- Expansion Grants: co-investment grants designed to expand the use of proven technologies and related services in nonprofits.
Once NFF has approved a grant, the applying nonprofit is expected to sign a grant agreement that stipulates the terms of the grant, including qualitative and quantitative success reporting, testimonial and case study participation, as well as a financial commitment by the nonprofit for the continued use of the technology once it has been proven to deliver targeted financial performance. The full text of the grant agreement can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
