The National Network of Fiscal Sponsors promotes the understanding and professional practice of fiscal sponsorship.
NNFS is a professional network of organizations and individuals working in the field of fiscal sponsorship, who recognize the value of working together to develop the field. We convene events, share peer knowledge, advocate for the field, and develop best- and next-practices together, to advance our work for the public benefit.
Fiscal sponsorship has evolved as an effective and efficient mode of starting new nonprofits, seeding social movements, and delivering public services. Fiscal sponsorship generally entails a nonprofit organization (the “fiscal sponsor”) agreeing to provide administrative services and oversight to, and assume some or all of the legal and financial responsibility for, the activities of groups or individuals engaged in work that relates to the fiscal sponsor’s mission.
