NFF works toward a more just and vibrant society through:
Financing that invests in missions. Our customized financing strengthens hardworking nonprofits and social enterprises.

Nonprofit Finance Fund® (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 Advisory Services team is seeking a full-time Associate, Advisory Knowledge.
Recognizing that our clients strive to adapt in an ever-changing environment, NFF’s Advisory Services adapts our consulting services with customized solutions built around individualized client needs. To facilitate this learning-intensive approach, the internally-facing Knowledge team works to make a broad range of content accessible to staff, such as lessons and resources from past and current work, a reference library of consulting tools, and detailed explanations of concepts used in NFF’s advocacy efforts. We also build upon existing resources and knowledge to support new needs as they arise.
The Advisory Services Associate serves as an integral member of the Advisory Services practice with primarily responsibility for supporting the day-to-day operations of the Knowledge team. A key responsibility is to manage and build upon the SharePoint-based Wiki that houses NFF’s repository of knowledge. This includes coordinating with Advisory staff on their knowledge contributions, organizing existing content for easy reference and synthesizing newly acquired information for quick and accessible learning. In addition to managing the Wiki, the Associate will serve as project manager to keep other Knowledge efforts on track, which can include liaising with the Operations team to align Knowledge efforts with Salesforce, updating the library of workshop material, and providing logistical support during Advisory staff training and onboarding.
The successful candidate has a commitment to the social sector and a passion for topics related to nonprofit capacity building or financial consulting. While not a client facing role, the Associate is immersed in a wide array of topics related to consulting, finance and management practices of the nonprofit sector. They are expected to learn about the key issues within the field, understand NFF’s priority areas for learning and synthesize information for sharing.
The Associate works directly with NFF senior-level consultants and the entire Advisory Services team on a regular basis and, as such, must embody NFF Values and be able to communicate in a clear, compelling and accessible manner. Like all team members, the Associate works in a fast-paced environment and manages a substantial portfolio of work. This position will work closely with and report directly to the Advisory Services Director for Knowledge. The Associate can expect regular supervision, particularly as it relates to setting priorities, but there is an expectation of self-reliance in most day-to-day tasks. This is a position to be located in NFF's New York office.
