Fiscal Sponsorship

What is Fiscal Sponsorship?

Do you have a new program you want to launch and pilot before investing time and resources into a formal nonprofit corporation? Do you need to secure donations or grants for a community project but do not want to jump through the hoops of becoming a 501(c)(3)? Are you a for-profit corporation that wants to start a charitable program?

If you answered yes to one of the questions above, fiscal sponsorship might be for you. Fiscal sponsorship is an IRS approved way of accepting tax-deductible donations for your organization or project via an already established 501(c)(3) organization.

Fiscal Sponsorship with Ecologistics

As one way to promote environmental and social justice activism, Ecologistics acts as a fiscal sponsor for organizations and projects that align with our corporate purposes.

Ecologistics is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation, meaning donations made to Ecologistics are tax-deductible.

Fiscal sponsorship through Ecologistics can meet the requirements of foundations that require grant funds go to an established tax-exempt entity. Fiscal sponsorship can also allow individual donors to take a tax deduction, while still supporting your organization or project.

We charge a small fee to cover the costs of administering fiscal sponsorship contracts and funds.
