Guide to Fiscal Sponsorship and Affiliation

General Information


"A sensible awareness of the rules of the game can be a condition of individualism, not merely a constraint upon it."
      —William H. Whyte, Jr., The Organization Man


Since most foundation funding is awarded to nonprofits rather than to individuals, affiliating yourself with an organization or obtaining a fiscal sponsor can increase your likelihood of receiving funding. Most such affiliations with fiscal sponsors are rather formal, based on a written contract that spells out who will do what, and some sponsors will extract a fee for this service. This guide is a detailed look at the affiliation possibilities for individual grantseekers.
