The Northern California Community Loan Fund is a nonprofit financing and technical assistance institution created in 1987 to assist in the revitalization of low income and minority communities across the 42 counties of Northern California. NCCLF serves as a bridge between socially concerned investors and nonprofit community-based organizations, which typically have difficulty gaining access to financing from banks or other conventional lending institutions.* Since its inception, NCCLF has committed 138 loans and provided training and technical assistance that has helped nonprofit organizations build hundreds of affordable housing units, create new jobs, and maintain organizational and financial stability.* Based in San Francisco, NCCLF has a $10 million revolving loan fund, a $1 million operating budget, a staff of ten, and a variety of flexible lending products and effective technical assistance for nonprofit human service agencies, affordable housing developers, and economic development groups serving low-income communities throughout Northern California.
The Finance Director, a full-time manager position reporting to the Executive Director, manages the financial operations of NCCLF, including supervising and/or performing all accounting functions, financial reporting, audit, cash and investment management, budgeting, planning, and database management.* The Finance Director supervises two full-time staff (Accounting Assistant and Office Manager), coordinates the work of NCCLF's contracted bookkeeping services and audit firm, and provides staff support to the Board Finance Committee.* In addition, the Finance Director will play a key role in three important organizational priorities for 2001: the purchase and installation of in-house accounting software to produce financial reports in-house; the modification of our current computerized investor database; and the implementation of two new lending and technical assistance programs.
The Finance Director position requires a highly motivated, well-organized professional with strong financial management, computer, and communication skills, who is excited about working in an active and expanding nonprofit and thrives in a friendly, informal, yet fast-paced environment.
