Our Supporters

Corporate, foundation and individual supporters provide essential funding to help NFTE fulfill its mission to promote equitable access to economic opportunity by teaching business skills and activating the entrepreneurial mindset in youth from under-resourced communities. Our most successful partnerships span a multi-year life cycle and involve a number of different features. Here are some of the ways you can partner with NFTE.

NFTE relies on the generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals to provide financial support for our programs. Grants, sponsorships, and personal gifts offer exciting ways to have a charitable impact.

Put your expertise to good use through meaningful skills-based volunteering and mentoring opportunities. Rally friends and colleagues to volunteer as business coaches, classroom advisors, competition judges, and field trip hosts.

Help NFTE grow by making connections to area schools, donors, media, local government, and other community partners. Help shine a light on entrepreneurship education and what it means for workforce development and economic opportunity.
