Our Vision

We believe that meaningful change in our society occurs through a combination of transforming ideas, strong institutions, and great leaders. NCF invests in organizations and individuals who are leading in innovation and willing to take risks. Our preference is to fund organizations that help mold and change public opinion in order to generate more support for a progressive and inclusive government and an active civil society.

We make direct investments in organizations, and support research on changing gender roles and family dynamics. We also participate in funding collaboratives, including support for progressive political infrastructure via The Democracy Alliance, and support for clean elections in conjunction with the Piper Fund.
