What is a Fiscal Sponsor?

A fiscal sponsor is an organization that agrees to accept, and be responsible for, tax-deductible contributions and charitable gifts on behalf of a project that does not have its own tax exemption. Using a fiscal sponsor, a non-exempt individual, project, event, or organization can take advantage of a lot of the benefits of a tax exempt nonprofit organization.

Fiscal Sponsorship is a good solution for organizations (or certain individual projects or events) that only want to do a few small projects over a specified period of time, those who don’t have the time or staff for a lot of organizational administration, or those who need to be able to receive tax-deductible donations while they wait for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status approval from the IRS.

As a fiscal sponsor, Community Website Partnership can:

  • Accept and safeguard charitable donations on behalf of a project
  • Take on legal liability for those funds
  • Create and maintain some accounting records for the project
  • Qualifies the project for some grants and funding that would otherwise be inaccessible
  • Brings experience to the project and may provide additional aids such as administrative services and/or strategic planning assistance
