NVCF helps identify and launch the next generation of high impact social ventures. We invest in bold ideas, providing changemakers with a comprehensive set of innovative resources to profit the world.
One of our greatest contributions to the community is our ability to bring people together to engage in public discussions and problem-solving.
Community leadership requires collaboration and we partner with other foundations, corporations, nonprofits, donors and government agencies on cross-sector solutions that multiply our reach and impact.
NVCF offers the knowledge, skills and tools to help community members be as effective as possible in working with others to create the future together.
