Fiscal Sponsor

Fiscal sponsorship is a practice that has evolved as an effective and efficient means of starting new charitable initiatives, delivering public services, and seeding social movements. Fiscal sponsors are nonprofits that enable the movement of resources from funders and donors to projects, activities, ideas, and organizations that share the fiscal sponsor's mission. Fiscal sponsorship sits at the heart of Tides Center's services by providing a legal framework to our projects.
