The purpose of the Collaborative Impact Program (Impact Program) is to incubate, scale, and sustain solutions to California’s opportunities and challenges through intentional partnership with mission-aligned programs and organizations. As part of the Impact Program, the Foundation for California Community Colleges provides fiscal sponsorship and management services through affiliation with education-related nonprofit organizations, programs, and projects to achieve aligned missions and goals.
Fiscal sponsorship is an agreement in which an unincorporated effort that is consistent with our tax-exempt purpose and goals becomes one of our programs, while driving its own planning, development, and programmatic work, with our organizational support. A management services agreement is an arrangement through which an incorporated, tax-exempt organization that advances goals aligned with ours contracts with us to provide management services, including human services, fiscal management, information technology services, and more.
The work of the Foundation for California Community Colleges, at its core, is about improving education in California. Through partnership building, innovation, and resources, we aim to be an integral partner in the successful education of all Californians. The Collaborative Impact Program assists us to achieve this aim.
