Fiscal Sponsorship

We help you with the how.

You know the need and have a vision for how to achieve it. We provide the administrative infrastructure and share our expertise in the business side of nonprofits.

Together, we can make your vision a reality, whether you’re starting up, scaling or transferring from another 501c3 to ours. We welcome organizations from all over the country and make space for leaders within all types of communities, all with one goal in common: to create change.

A partner to support your vision.

Comprehensive fiscal sponsorship enables you to start-up, scale and operate with the infrastructure and experience of a larger nonprofit organization.

With comprehensive fiscal sponsorship, you get to:

  • Keep Your Brand

    With fiscal sponsorship, the public face of your organization is your name and brand, but you are legally part of Community Partners.

  • Receive Grants and Donations

    No need to file with the state or apply to the IRS; you can begin accepting grants and donations as soon as we approve your application, usually within 4-8 weeks.

  • Operate Professionally

    All operating systems are in place. You don’t need to hire an accountant, figure out payroll or devote valuable time and resources to building infrastructure.

  • Maintain Focus

    Program goals and mission can stay front and center, rather than the administrative details of running an organization.

  • Receive Expert Guidance

    Our staff is knowledgeable and passionate about all aspects of starting and running a nonprofit. We offer one-on-one counsel, workshops, networking and peer-learning opportunities to help you succeed.

  • Offer Health Insurance and Retirement Benefits

    You and your team will be part of our group plan, giving you access to competitive benefits that help attract and retain employees.

  • Boost Your Credibility

    Funders appreciate the stability we provide with a professionally run back office and guidance on both the program and administrative aspects of nonprofit management.

  • Insure Your Organization

    Protect your organization and teams with all necessary insurance, and let us help manage potential risks and vulnerabilities so you can continue doing great work in the community.
