What We Do:
Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) works toward a more just and vibrant society through:
Financing that invests in missions. Our customized financing strengthens hardworking nonprofits and social enterprises.
Consulting that empowers leaders. Our experts equip you to make financial decisions that best serve your mission.
Partnering on big problems. Service providers, funders, and investors turn to us for new ways to collaboratively support stronger, fairer communities.
Learning that helps illuminate paths to solving complex social issues. Sharing experiences and expertise – from ideas to anecdotes to cutting-edge data and analysis – makes it easier.
NFF advances missions and social progress in underserved communities through financing, consulting, partnerships, and knowledge-sharing that empower leaders, organizations, and ideas. A leading Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), NFF currently manages over $310 million. Since 1980, we have provided almost $700 million in financing and access to additional capital in support of over $2.3 billion in projects for thousands of organizations nationwide.
The Senior Associate, Knowledge & Communications (K&C) is a central member of a fast-moving and highly collaborative team that designs and executes outreach, communications, and thought-leadership projects to advance NFF’s work toward a more just and vibrant society. S/he is charged with executing a variety of projects and tasks including (but not limited to) creation and dissemination of text-based and graphic content via publications, social media, marketing collateral, and three websites.
The right person for this role will have very strong writing, copy editing, and proofreading skills, notably the facility to write quickly, clearly, concisely, and in others’ style and voices. S/he will have a keen eye for detail and accuracy, and a demonstrated ability to identify and compellingly tell NFF’s stories. We are looking for a proactive, problem-solving, and collaborative spirit with a sense of humor and a readiness to pivot, someone who will responsibly and accountably see projects through to fruition on time and budget. S/he will be a good and active listener and creative thinker, who respectfully voices his/her thoughts and ideas – and jumps in with two feet whatever the chosen path.
The ideal candidate embodies NFF’s values, proactively builds strong relationships with and wholeheartedly collaborates across K&C and wider NFF teams, and adds value up and down the management chain.
This position will be based in NFF’s New York headquarters and will report to the Vice President, Knowledge & Communications.
