Fiscal sponsorships

Fiscal Sponsorship is a relationship you establish with a registered, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, mainly so that you are able to accept deductible donations and grants. Registering for your own 501(c)3 status is always an option, but many groups choose not to register because of the paperwork, expenses and other requirements that come with it. Many groups choose to find a fiscal sponsor until their group has the capacity to get their own status.

There are three main types of fiscal sponsorships.
