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.
Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) regularly takes the temperature of the U.S. social sector by reaching out to thousands of nonprofits about their programmatic, management, financial, and operational health and challenges, and exploring the dynamics underlying their responses. Gathering, analyzing, sharing, and driving dialogue about this critical data – aggregated nationally and segmented by sub-sector, organization size, geography, and other factors – is a major pillar of NFF’s commitment to unlock the potential of mission-driven organizations by sharing accessible insights. The Survey’s data and analysis of U.S. nonprofit health are widely shared, utilized, and cited by funders, media, researchers, advocates, and nonprofits themselves. NFF relies on a wide range of internal and external partners to help increase the Survey’s response rate and reach.
The Survey is a high-priority, high-collaboration project for all members of the Knowledge & Impact (K&I) team. For each Survey cycle, we engage a Survey Specialist to project-manage, and to lead and help execute, activities across the Survey’s life cycle from fundraising and marketing through launch, response tracking, data collection, analysis, and communication of the findings to a wide range of audiences through publications, presentations, media outreach, events, and other channels.

This position represents a great opportunity for a professional interested in helping to collect and raise nonprofits’ voices, and improve understanding of the U.S. social sector. The contract term will begin in October 2017 and last approximately one year, with the possibility of extension depending on workflow and funding. The Survey Specialist reports to the Vice President of Knowledge & Communications and is a fully engaged member of the busy K&I team for the contract duration, ready and willing to jump in and help with other, non-Survey-related, projects as needed. This position is based in NFF’s New York headquarters office.
