Follow Your Passion with Fiscal Sponsorship

Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) public charity sponsors a program that lacks tax-exempt status. This is a great alternative to starting your own nonprofit, which can be costly and administratively burdensome. Fiscal sponsorship allows you to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under the charity’s exempt status.

Why Choose Fiscal Sponsorship at United Charitable?

United Charitable has the experience, knowledge, and resources to help your fiscally sponsored program succeed! We provide advanced levels of management and infrastructure that most small grassroots nonprofits would not otherwise be able to afford.

United Charitable can help you to focus on your charitable work while we provide the expert back-office management. Our knowledgeable staff is well-versed in helping your nonprofit program operate with maximum efficiency, while encouraging maximum growth!

United Charitable is one of the few charities in the United States which offers fiscal sponsorship on a national level, across all charitable missions.
