Mission: NFI is dedicated to promoting community stability (for urban and rural areas) by assisting those who invest in the development of low-income communities.
Results: Launching a fundraising event called: “Give a Nickel: It’s a Nice Thing”. This campaign is NFI’s way of raising funds that won't break the bank. The smallest donation of a nickel could greatly support our efforts. As we see it, if NFI raises 2 million nickels, then NFI will have the necessary capital to help improve our communities…so…We need your help!!!
Target demographics: NFI is committed to the resolve of issues which create the circumstance of generational poverty as it pertains to workforce and economic development. Our organizational view is designed to address the issues through a two pronged approach: preventive and reactive. • The preventive approach focuses on the growth and development of students: those entering the workforce in the near future (high school and undergraduate college students). • The reactive approach deals with young and older adults able to join the workforce. These sections of individuals are those that range in age from 18-64 who are chronically unemployed and grossly under skilled.
