Our Progress

ASCF has engaged in various partnerships over the course of it's lifetime, and through hardwork and dedication, we have been able to bring some of these projects and programs to life. What next big need should be addressed?

Fiscal Sponsorship

Fiscal sponsorship is a contractual arrangement between a nonprofit organization and a project or group that shares a similar mission. The nonprofit, or fiscal sponsor, gives the project its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and other administrative benefits, allowing it to receive tax-deductible donations and grants that it might not otherwise be able to. In exchange, the fiscal sponsor may charge a fee, such as a percentage of the project's revenue, or provide back office services. The fiscal sponsor is also responsible for ensuring that the project's activities are charitable in nature.
