Fiscal sponsorship with TCF empowers changemakers to concentrate on their mission, while leveraging the infrastructure, expertise, and community connections of TCF.
Fiscal sponsorship through The Community’s Foundation (TCF) is a strategic collaboration that empowers individuals, community-driven initiatives, and nonprofit startups to advance their philanthropic and charitable objectives with ease. TCF, as the fiscal sponsor, assumes full legal and fiduciary responsibility for the sponsored projects, granting the project access to TCF’s tax-exempt status. This invaluable status allows sponsored entities to accept tax-deductible donations, apply for grants, and conduct fundraising efforts under the umbrella of a well-established and respected nonprofit organization.
With The Community’s Foundation’s (TCF) robust support structure, our volunteer leaders can channel their precious time and energy into two vital pillars of our mission: fundraising and delivering essential services. TCF’s dedicated 6-person staff shoulders the responsibility for a wide array of critical functions, ensuring our volunteer leaders can operate efficiently and effectively. Our staff excels in strategy development, handling the administrative intricacies, promoting and marketing your initiative, planning successful events, managing grants and scholarships, safeguarding against risks, ensuring compliance with regulations, and maintaining accurate financial records.
If you’re interested in establishing a partnership with TCF or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at info@TCFhelps.org.
