Eligibility Criteria

If a group’s mission is eligible for funding, you do not need to be approved by the IRS as 501c3.
However, if there is no financial account in the name of your organization, a fiscal sponsor is required.
A fiscal sponsor is an organization with 501c(3) status, a designation with the IRS allowing that entity to receive tax-deductible donations.
A fiscal sponsor will partner with you to receive and distribute your grant funding.
Note that most fiscal sponsors will charge a percentage for this service and will offer varying levels of support. Please keep in mind that they do NOT fund individuals.
