Many nonprofits are thinking about the importance of “going green”, both because sustainability goals align with their missions and because energy efficient buildings mean lower utility costs every month.
Yet most nonprofits are already stretching their human and financial resources as far as possible.
IFF can help.
We support nonprofits' sustainability efforts by combining our knowledge of real estate development, below-market rate financing, nonprofit operating environments, and the latest advancements in green design.

IFF's sustainable solutions for nonprofits include:
- Energy Performance Program (E2P)
E2P enables nonprofits to significantly lower energy bills with energy efficiency upgrades to their facilities, saving them money on utilities every month for years to come. IFF identifies ways to save the most money, manages the upgrades, helps find incentives to help offset costs, and finances the entire project. We manage the process, our customers enjoy the savings.
- Energy Efficiency Loans
We offer affordable, flexible financing to nonprofits looking to integrate “green” design and construction techniques into their facilities projects. We finance a wide range of sustainable solutions--including renovation/retrofit and new construction projects with energy-saving elements, HVAC and lighting upgrades, energy efficient windows, and more.
