What is fiscal sponsorship?

The Sand County Foundation serves as the fiscal sponsor for the Environmental Policy Innovation Center.  The Sand County Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity (Federal tax ID 396089450).  Your donation will be placed into a separate account by the Foundation, for the exclusive use of Innovation Center projects and work.  Your donation is tax deductible.

You can learn more about this common approach of fiscal sponsorship from the National Council of Nonprofits here.

A fiscal sponsorship is an approach to charitable work in which a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (the “fiscal sponsor”) offers its legal and tax-exempt status to another group for a project or an activity related to the mission of the nonprofit organization.  Hundreds of non-profit organizations serve as fiscal sponsors for thousands of charitable projects like ours across the country.
