Make a difference, even before making a grant
For most NCF givers, sending grants to charities from their fund is how they make a tangible difference for the causes they love. But a growing number of givers are using their fund balance itself to generate charitable good. With impact investing, your fund’s assets are invested in private companies, venture funds, or non-profits that are achieving spiritual impact. Once the investment is made, the entity puts the money to work, and the earnings go back into your fund. So while furthering the causes you love, your fund also has the potential to generate financial returns.

How it works
After giving cash or non-cash assets into your NCF fund, you select from a variety of unique impact investing options to make a difference for your favorite causes. Potential financial returns go back to your fund balance, which you can use to pursue other impact investing opportunities or recommend traditional grants to charities.
