When is Fiscal Sponsorship Right for You?

Fiscal sponsorship organizations like Visions Made Viable are dedicated to helping creative people make a difference in the world. We're committed to furthering important and effective social change by assisting social change agents create new projects and realize their visions.

But fiscal sponsorship isn't right for everybody.

If you're checking out Visions Made Viable and wondering whether fiscal sponsorship is right for you, take a few minutes to look over the following questions. If you can answer yes to any of these three questions your project may be a good candidate for fiscal sponsorship.

Do you want to create a new non profit but need some help or a little more time to get it done?

If so, Visions Made Viable can provide legal, fiscal and administrative sponsorship for individuals and groups that want to work for social change without all the hassle of immediately creating their own non-profits, but who eventually want to develop independent organizations. By acting as an ‘incubator’ for these new efforts, we allow people with new ideas to begin testing them right away and ‘get to the mission at hand’ in a supportive and trusting environment.

We give you a sophisticated non-profit home and the ability to receive tax deductible donations immediately as well as an administrative ‘back office.’ In addition, we offer consulting to help you strengthen your work. Then, as your project develops and when the time is right, we help you ‘spin off’ and become an independent non-profit.

Do you want to create and develop a new project without ever running your own non profit?

Some individuals and groups want the freedom to pursue important social change without ever developing and managing an independent non-profit and dealing with the administrative complexity that comes along with it. In order to meet that need, we provide long-term legal, fiscal and administrative sponsorship.

Basically, our ongoing sponsorship services offer all the benefits of our incubator services over the long haul. This helps innovative people and groups to ‘keep the main thing the main thing’ as they build their visions.

Are you creating a new non profit or project--or running a non profit or project-- based outside the U.S. and need a fiscal sponsor in the U.S in order to gain access to U.S based tax deductable grant monies and/or individual donations from U.S. citizens?

Visions Made Viable also offers ongoing sponsorship to new and existing non profits and projects based outside the U.S. We can act as the official non profit home in the U.S. for overseas organizations. This allows important overseas efforts for social change to receive grant monies from U.S. based foundations and tax deductible contributions from U.S. citizens.
