We believe knowledge, creativity, and inspiration come from all corners of our communities, which is why we’re taking the campaign to reorient around outcomes on the road. We’re hosting a series of events across the country to create space for people to connect, learn from one another, and share their stories. Come meet leading practitioners in the social sector, and receive a copy of our book!


Please join the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and Nonprofit Finance Fund for the launch of our upcoming book, What Matters: Investing in Results to Build Strong, Vibrant Communities, and the beginning of a dialogue on the evolution of the outcomes universe. At these free events, we'll explore how service providers, government, philanthropy, and others are working together to address entrenched social issues in our communities and focus on long-term solutions. 

See below to register. Complimentary lunch, refreshments, and copies of the book will be available to all our guests. Space is limited!


Washington, DC: September 12

Visit our registration page above for an evolving agenda and list of speakers.


While there’s much discussion among government, philanthropy, and community leaders about how our systems must change to achieve outcomes, the voices of service providers are often less heard in these dialogues. 

We know that the perspectives and experiences of providers are critical to moving towards an outcomes-based world. Toward that end, NFF is developing a free, interactive, day-long workshop for service providers, designed to bolster their capacity, surface their needs, and explore the systemic infrastructure required to achieve outcomes for their clients or communities. 

Please email events@nff.org to sign up for invitations or learn more!
