Fiscal sponsorship is a contractual relationship between a sponsoring 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Far Away Projects) and an organization, group or individual whose activities fall within the sponsoring nonprofit’s mission. This relationship enables the 501(c)(3) nonprofit to extend certain benefits of nonprofit roles to the sponsored group, such as being able to accept donations that are tax-deductible, without the project group having to go through filing for nonprofit status by itself. In other words: we built an entire organization so that social impact projects don’t have to go through the long process of gaining nonprofit 501(c)(3) status to accept donations.
Far Away Projects is a 501(c)3 nonprofit fiscal sponsorship organization that supports global social impact programs and grassroots efforts around the world.
We connect social entrepreneurs to vital resources, tools, and support to grow their initiatives. Our project leaders come from around the world with powerful ideas to transform their local communities. Projects are selected for fiscal sponsorship based on their alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
