What do people have to say about us?

Amanda Kolman | Hope House Canon City
"Fiscal Sponsorship Allies made things really simple for our start up. One of the most daunting things about starting a non-profit is needing to raise money before your non profit status is complete. So, this helps so much! Everyone on the team answers my questions really fast and I feel like they have our best interest at heart."
Eric Victor | Therapies for Hope
Working with Fiscal Sponsorship Allies was one of the best decisions I made as the Executive Director of a newly incorporated non-profit, Therapies for Hope, Inc. in 2021. (Therapiesforhope.org) The staff at Fiscal Sponsorship Allies were always immediately responsive to our requests and demonstrated incredible flexibility and understanding of our needs. They were extremely professional and competent and though I was pleased that our non-profit did recently receive its 501c3 tax exempt status from the IRS recently, I would have been happy to continue working with Fiscal Sponsorship Allies in the interim.

What is Ribbon?

Ribbon is the online platform we use to manage the fiscal sponsorship program. You’ll need to sign up for a Ribbon account (for free) in order to apply to the program. In Ribbon, sponsees can view donor information and the amount of funds available for their program.

For programs that are accepted, you can create donation pages through Ribbon that accept donations online. Sponsees can also create debit cards to use for the charitable program, submit expenses for reimbursement, submit bills for online bill pay and more! You can see a quick video about Ribbon here.

Fiscal sponsorship is great for... fundraising before 501c3 status. new charitable programs. short term projects. nonprofits who were revoked. one-time charitable events.


What projects do you fiscally sponsor?

We provide fiscal sponsorship for a variety of charitable programs nationwide. We require that your programs are charitable by the IRS standards for 501(c)(3) organizations and that you don’t engage in political activity. To remain in good standing, we require sponsees to submit information about how funds are used to ensure they’re used charitably.

Most frequent questions and answers

No, we do not provide funding and we do not accept funding proposals. We don’t offer professional fundraising services, though we do publish general fundraising content in our email newsletter, blog and on social media.

Yes, most of the time sponsees can use fiscal sponsorship for as long as they would like, as long as they’re in good standing. The only exception is for Sponsees who have received funding from a grant that is time-bound. We’re happy to answer questions on this topic.

Our core services of fiscal sponsorship are included. This includes processing online donations, sending donation acknowledgements for all donations, reviewing your receipts for compliance, upkeep of the software used to facilitate your fiscal sponsorship and providing you with real time information about donations.

If you’d like additional services, please let our team know. We’re happy to see how we can help!

While bookkeeping services are not included in the fiscal sponsorship package itself, our sister consulting firm, Allies 4 Good, provides some bookkeeping and 990 preparation services. 

Yes! We fiscally sponsor existing 501c3s for a variety of reasons including: providing 3+ years of financial statements for specific grants, soliciting charitable donations in all 50 states (we’re licensed to fundraise in every state that requires it), and managing the donation processing/acknowledgements for you until you are able to handle that administrative task.

It depends on how the donor chooses to donate. Donations made online via credit or debit card are often available in almost real time. Donations made via other methods, like checks, can sometimes take a few days to clear the system before being available for use by your program.
