Our Mission

Neighborhood Funders Group organizes philanthropy so that Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities and low-income communities thrive.

NFG was established in 1980. During our early years, NFG was one of the few spaces in philanthropy specifically focused on people of color-led, grassroots organizing, and power building as the key to effective social change strategies.

Today, NFG is a place for meaning-making in philanthropy. We offer funders a political home: a place to connect, strategize, and take action.

NFG’s membership is composed of over 140 grantmaking organizations that co-conspire to accelerate racial, gender, economic, disability, and climate justice. 

We welcome you to NFG and encourage you to connect with our dynamic programs that explore structural racism in health and housing, racial capitalism, migrant worker justice in rural areas, and more: Democratizing Development Program, Funders for a Just Economy, Integrated Rural Strategies Group, Midwest Organizing Infrastructure Funders, Philanthropy Forward, and our grantmaking program, the Amplify Fund.
