Are there any special requirements for fiscally sponsored organizations?
Organizations using fiscal sponsors should maintain their own professionally generated financial records or have their fiscal agent maintain financial records for them. Fiscally sponsored organizations must also have their own Board of Directors or Advisory Board.
If my organization is sponsored by a fiscal agent, whose information should be presented in the LOI, Intent to Apply, and/or Application?
Fiscally sponsored organizations should include their own financial, board, and contact information on the LOI, Intent to Apply, and/or Application. The fiscal sponsor’s name should be entered where noted. Organizations without their own EIN should enter the EIN of their fiscal agent. If awarded a grant, grant contracts will be signed by the fiscal agent and grant checks will be made out to the fiscal agent, with copies of both sent to the applicant organization.
