A fiscal sponsor is a nonprofit organization that provides fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services to help build the capacity of charitable projects.

The term “Fiscal Sponsorship” describes an arrangement between a non-profit organization such as the CFNCM, with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and a project, often a new charitable effort, conducted by an organization, group, or an individual that does not have 501(c)(3) status.

We do allow organizations that have a fiscal sponsor to apply for our grants.

If you are in need of a fiscal sponsor for your project, the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts offers this service. Please contact Linda Mack, Vice President for Philanthropy at lmack@cfncm.org for more information.
