NFG’s work in place builds and strengthens relationships between national grantmakers, local and regional funders, and community organizations for our long-term outcome: philanthropic assets are liberated so that BIPOC communities and low-income communities have power to self-determine.

Our theory of change centers local expertise & lived experience, root cause analysis, place, and power building. Even though local organizers are tackling systemic issues, each place has unique challenges, strategies, and solutions.
