Need a Fiscal Sponsor?
Fiscal Sponsorship at IFCO allows domestic and international groups committed to social justice work to use our 501c3 tax-exempt status to seek grants, hold fundraisers and solicit tax-deductible gifts.
In order for IFCO to consider providing fiscal sponsorship, the group must illustrate a mission that is in sync with IFCO’s which includes:
· Supporting the poor and disenfranchised in developing and sustaining community organizations
· Fighting human and civil rights injustices
· Developing programs designed to improve people’s own communities
IFCO will not sponsor projects with activities that include:
- Supporting elected officials or those running for political office
- Promoting violence
- Are listed on the US government’s Specially Designated Nationals list – a list of individuals, groups or entities maintained by the US Treasury Department that identifies so-called terrorists and narcotics traffickers
