A fiscal sponsor is an organization with 501(c)(3) IRS tax-exempt status that agrees, in writing, to be responsible for the fiscal management of a particular program or project that does not have its own tax-exemption status with the IRS. See our Resources for Nonprofits
for groups who can help you find a fiscal sponsor.
The fiscal sponsor needs to provide the required attachments as well as a letter signed by the Executive Director that indicates they are acting as the fiscal sponsor for the “sponsored” organization applying for a grant. This information must be submitted with the application attachments.
