Why invest?

We believe our approach and focus on emerging organizations will generate high returns in social good, the networks addressing poverty, and the city as a whole.

NCF exclusively supports organizations who are committed to providing real and enduring pathways out of poverty for the people and communities of Chicago. Donor investments are leveraged across a portfolio of promising organizations over three years and our model is designed to encourage higher levels of accountability and impact over longer periods.

We welcome financial support from donors who believe that the spirit of resilience runs strong in Chicago, and invest in the transformative power of possibility and philanthropy.
