IFF partners with nonprofits across the Midwest and enables them to achieve their missions, support their communities, and increase their financial stability. The Vice President of Resource Development position is an exciting opportunity for an experienced fundraiser or nonprofit manager to play a pivotal role in the organization’s cultivation and stewardship of funder relationships, shaping strategy and leading and supporting outreach efforts to raise grant funds from a diverse funder base that includes foundations, banks, corporations, government, and others interested in partnering with IFF.
As a CDFI (community development financial institution), IFF 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 further and provides its nonprofit borrowers with the research, resources, and expertise needed to best use capital and improve their communities.
