Most frequent questions and answers
If you are approved for fiscal sponsorship through Fiscal Sponsorship Allies, we will send you a few questions to answer. Once those questions are answered, we’ll create a custom donation page for you within 2 business days. You’ll be able to start fundraising as soon as your donation page is complete!
We respond to inquiries within 3 business days. Usually, we can send you an approval or denial within that time frame, but we might need to ask additional questions to ensure your charitable project meets the standards of our program.
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 quarterly reports for compliance, reviewing any grant applications for compliance, sending your monthly disbursements, and providing you with monthly donor reports.
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.
Donations your project receives will be disbursed in the following month. We disburse donations between the 10th and the 25th each month. For example, if your project received donations in the month of July, all donations from July would be sent in a lump sum sometime between August 10th and 25th.
