NFN Learning Academy FAQs

Is the NFN Learning Academy right for me?

We understand that this community is not for everyone. This community is a safe space that provides vetted resources, courses, and access to industry experts for those who are newbies to the nonprofit world. The purpose of this community is to assist in establishing community organizations that have solid foundations and can be effective in fulfilling their mission. This group is not necessarily for organizations that have been established running for an extended period of time. Our community focuses on nonprofit start up, board and program development, funding, and providing access industry resources. The group provides strategies and accountability but it is ultimately up to the learner to implement the tools to move forward with their organization development. 

Information in this community is not typically for:
  • Nonprofit organizations formed solely to support other organizations
  • Medical organizations (i.e. hospitals, clinics, wellness centers)
  • Insurance Providing Entities 
  • Private Foundations 
  • Private Operating Foundations
Do I have to have a nonprofit organization to join?

No! Becoming a nonprofit organization founder is a large responsibility and is not for the faint of heart. If you have an idea and not sure if/how to move forward this group is for you as well. It is our hope that even if you decide not to start your own organization we can assist you in partnering with an organization that aligns with your values.

If my faith beliefs are different than those presented NFN Learning Academy, can I still join? 

NFN Learning Academy does not discriminate or exclude members based on race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status such as disability, age, marital and family status, sexual orientation and gender identity, health status, place of residence, economic or social situation. 

We are committed to our faith based values AND our community members. Members are not mandated to engage in faith based courses and teachings if they choose not to. Members are expected to respect the views of those within the NFN Learning Academy.

Does the NFN Learning Academy service international organizations?

The information presented is primarily for organizations based in the United States. Our team does not have experience or an expertise in working with international organizations.

Why did you create the NFN Learning Academy? 

Although the NFN Facebook group has been growing exponentially, over the last several months the identity and the value of the group has been lost due to a number of factors. The development of this community allows for an increase in quality, value, communication, and community that is not as easily facilitated using a Facebook group.

Why are you charging for this community?

We understand that the investment for the NFN Learning Academy may not be for everyone and that is okay! This community is paid as it provide high quality courses, mentorship, and other premium benefits. The fees associated with the community allows us to staff team members to provide continual assistance that is not available in a Facebook group.

What are the membership costs for the NFN Learning Academy? 

Introductory costs to maintain your membership is $24.99/monthly. Annual options are available. Annual membership purchasers will receive 2 months FREE.
