About IFF

IFF partners with nonprofits across the Midwest and enables them to achieve their missions, support their communities, and increase their financial stability. IFF is a CDFI (community development financial institution) that makes nonprofit loans and identifies real estate solutions that transform under-resourced communities into thriving communities. What sets IFF apart from other CDFIs is its Midwestern focus, passion for problem solving, and sector expertise.

Since 1988 IFF has made more than $1.3 billion in loans to nonprofits from every sector. Unlike a traditional lender, IFF goes a significant step farther and provides its nonprofit borrowers with the research, resources, and expertise needed to best use capital and improve their communities.

IFF is guided in its work by a commitment to be an inclusive, antiracist, and anti-oppressive institution. A shared belief in equity permeates its business practices, loans, and people.
