The National Computing Facilities Foundation (NCF) was an independent foundation that was funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). NCF was founded in 1990 with the aim of reducing strategic scientific research to allow and to encourage advanced ICT facilities available for outstanding researchers. SARA was a partner of NCF.

As of January 1, 2012, the activities of NCF were ended and transferred to SURF, NWO Physical Sciences and the Netherlands eScience Center.
