About us

NEGEF is a funder/activist collaborative – a unique model designed to meet needs of both the grassroots and philanthropic communities.

Through its model, NEGEF works to energize and nurture long-term civic engagement in local initiatives that create and maintain healthy, just, safe and environmentally sustainable communities.

To date, over four dozen private and community foundations have extended their giving through NEGEF, putting over $4 million in the hands of more than 1600 local initiatives across New England. The vast majority of NEGEF grantees are newly emerging, volunteer-driven, informal groups. As a 501(c)(3) public charity, NEGEF is able to support these ad hoc groups directly, no fiscal sponsors required. This eliminates barriers to completing the work at hand, fosters more community leadership, and frequently propels the group to take on other community challenges and needs.
