Fiscal Sponsorship

Fiscal Sponsorships header

Managing resources with efficiency and experience.

The Foundation for California Community Colleges provides fiscal sponsorship services to programs and projects that work in the public interest to enhance education in California and beyond, and that do not wish to become a nonprofit organization to accept charitable funding. Many began as projects of college faculty or are or have been closely associated with colleges or other local education agencies. Fiscally sponsored programs and projects of the Foundation receive the benefit of the Foundation’s close relationship with the Community College system, while state agencies have the convenience of entering easily into contracts with the Foundation because of its status as the official foundation for the California Community College Chancellor's Office. Currently, the Foundation manages more than $9 million in awarded funds for fiscally sponsored projects and programs.
