Who can apply?
Eligible sponsorship applicants include:
- Organizations classified as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3)
- Public agencies, including state and local governments
- Organizations using a fiscal sponsor with a 501(c)(3) or public agency status*
The Foundation generally does not provide sponsorships to grantees that have active general operating support grants.
*New or emerging organizations without 501(c)(3) status are permitted to apply through a tax-exempt organization acting as fiscal sponsor. The fiscal sponsor must maintain full discretion and control over any awarded funds and have the organizational capacity to manage and accept the risks involved with fiscal sponsorship. Additionally, the sponsored event must align with the fiscal sponsor’s charitable mission. Learn more about our policy.
