Fiscal Sponsorship Program

Fiscal Sponsorship

If you are working on a project that addresses a social or environmental issue, we encourage you to apply for fiscal sponsorship. Fiscal sponsorship allows you to operate as a non-profit organization without having to incorporate or apply for 501(c)(3) status. This can save you time and money, and it can give you access to resources that you would not otherwise have.


Fiscal sponsorship offers a number of benefits to projects, including:

  • Access to 501(c)(3) tax status
  • Ability to receive donations
  • Administrative and financial support
  • Networking opportunities
  • Access to resources

Who should apply? We are looking for projects that are:

  • Innovative and creative
  • Addressing a social or environmental issue
  • Led by a passionate and committed team
