what we do

Fiscal Sponsorship

Are you thinking about starting a nonprofit?

Come talk to us if:

  • You want quick and efficient access to 501(c)(3) tax exemption and tax deductions for donors.
  • You expect to operate for a limited period of time or on a longer term basis.
  • You don’t yet know whether your work will have enough long-term support from the community or from funders to sustain it.
  • You will soon file for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status but want to start fundraising immediately.
  • You need some incubation and guidance.
  • You don’t want to be responsible for obtaining and supervising financial management, administration, human resources, and legal and compliance services.

We offer an alternative to groups wanting to make a difference in our community and wishing to give their donors the ability to make a charitable contribution to meet those goals.  Our Fiscal Sponsorship program allows you to focus on your mission and not on 501(c)3 requirements.  We also provide bookkeeping and administration services to our Fiscal Sponsorship organizations. 

If you are interested in learning more, please download and read the following resources.  Feel free to contact us with any questions at 932-3090 or projects@sweetgrasscf.org.
