Recordings of 2016 Series: The Spectrum of Nonprofit Financing Options

In case you missed it live, you can still take advantage of webinars from our 2016 Webinar Series: The Spectrum of Nonprofit Financing Options.  Your order will include both a recording and downloadable PPT slides.

Please note that recordings are not available for purchase until 1 business day after the live webinar has occurred. 

Webinar 1: Introduction to Debt and Financing for Nonprofits

Available September 21, 2016 

Many nonprofits successfully use debt as a strategic tool to:

  • Purchase, build or renovate a facility, or make leasehold improvements
  • Purchase or upgrade equipment required for operations
  • Manage timing of receivables from government grants or capital campaigns
  • Expand programs or grow an earned income or social venture
  • Temporarily smooth cash flow to meet day-to-day operating needs

This introductory webinar is designed as resource for organizations that are new to the lending process and would like to learn more. In 60 minutes, NFF will review the typical types of loans available to nonprofits, what lenders look for from potential borrowers, and what to expect from a lender.


Webinar 2: The How and Why of PRIs: A Guide to Program and Mission Related Investments

Available September 28, 2016

Funders are increasingly considering modified, low-interest lending programs such as Program-Related Investments (PRIs) and Mission-Related Investments (MRIs) to supplement their traditional grantmaking practices. But when do PRIs or MRIs make sense as a financing tool for nonprofits? NFF will provide an overview of these two unique types of financing—including when, how and where these investments can be used by nonprofits for maximum mission returns. This 60-minute webinar provides answers to nonprofits’ most common questions about this unique type of program financing. 


Webinar 3: Philanthropic Equity: Bringing Programs to Scale

Available October 4, 2016

In the for-profit sector, a company periodically requires an injection of equity capital to fuel its growth and pay for the deficits incurred in route to sustainability—the point at which revenue reliably covers operating expenses. While the equity concepts of “ownership” and “return” do not exist for nonprofits (which don't have owners), mission-focused organizations nonetheless share the periodic need for investment and funders to fill that role. The sector is beginning to change in the way nonprofits and donors think about growth and fundraising, and how donated funds can helpfully fill the resource gap. Through this 60-minute webinar, NFF will unpack the concept of “philanthropic equity.” Facilitators will also distinguish between the roles of builders (those who invest in creating high-performing nonprofit enterprises) and buyers (those who invest directly in program execution) and offer tools to help each be more effective.


Webinar 4: Understanding New Markets Tax Credits

Available October 12, 2016 

The NMTC program, administered by the CDFI Fund of the US Treasury Department, uses tax credits to attract private investment to low-income communities. By allocating these tax credits on behalf of the government, qualified intermediaries can make flexible financing available to nonprofit borrowers in these communities. While the structuring can be complex, NMTC deals have helped finance health centers, theatres, charter schools, and food banks in communities where they are needed. Join NFF for a 60-minute webinar that explains the requirements for successful participation in a NMTC transaction.

Webinar 5: The Emergence of Pay for Success Funding

Available October 19, 2016 

At a time when everyone is being asked to do more with less, innovators around the world are seeking cost-effective solutions that can deliver better social outcomes for their communities. Pay for Success (PFS) is one such strategy: across the country, investments are increasingly being made in interventions that can demonstrate success in delivering social and economic outcomes for individuals, families, and communities most in need. NFF has emerged as a critical voice in this space: moderating the hub, facilitating readiness incubators, and preparing organizations for the transactional process.  In this 60-minute session, we’ll offer a brief history of PFS, and proceed to learn about the ways in which Pay For Success Financing works to connect performance outcomes to financial return, steps that organizations can take to prepare themselves to engage with PFS funding models, and a survey of the current PFS field.

Webinar 6: Impact Investing: From Conventional to Cutting Edge

Available October 26, 2016  

As the buzz around Impact Investing continues to grow, more investors are seeking ways to generate social and environmental impact alongside financial returns. Join NFF for an introduction to the topic, presented by Antony Bugg-Levine, CEO of NFF and co-author of Impact Investing: Transforming How We Make Money While Making a Difference. This 60-minute session is designed for those who are new to social investments and will explore common questions that surround the burgeoning field, such as: Where is the field now and where is it going? What are examples of impact investments in action? What kind of organizations are good candidates for an impact investment?
