About Our Fiscal Sponsorship
We want to enable you to bring your vision to life–easily and quickly. SocialGood has a broad social mission: to promote and cultivate positive influences for individuals, communities, and the environment. What does this mean for you? It means that, no matter the purpose of your project (social change, public art, environmental justice, etc.), as long as it brings a benefit to others and is non-commercial (i.e., exclusively for-profit), we can sponsor you. Moreover, we will sponsor you quickly.
We work to approve your project quickly giving you the assurance and peace of mind you need to start your work. Many Fiscal Sponsors charge an application fee. We do not. We encourage you to apply. We think that just knowing you can get started in your efforts gives you peace of mind that can be used to further your charitable efforts. If you need further general information about what fiscal sponsorship is, and how it can benefit you, the Foundation Center provides excellent information that can be found here. You can also view a list of some of our current projects here, or learn about how we can help you raise funds online here.
We work to approve your application quickly–with no hassle. That means if you apply today, you may be able to start next week!
No Minimum Budget
We do not require a minimum budget and there is no need to have funding already in place.
Low Administration Fees
Our administrative fees are lower than many sponsors, allowing you to spend your money where it’s needed most–on your project.
Because we want to help as many people as possible, we sponsor most projects.
