IFF provides loans, consulting, and development support to mission-driven nonprofits to help communities thrive. Key to our success has been a deep sense of purpose, a broad perspective, and a relentless focus on achieving positive results.

Capital Solutions

Capital is a critical resource that’s often beyond the reach of nonprofits serving communities with limited resources. At IFF, we work hard to change that. For more than 30 years, we’ve specialized in flexible lending products and creative real estate solutions that help nonprofits achieve their growth goals and best serve their communities.
