Improving educational opportunities and outcomes for all Californians.

Benefits of Partnership

Fiscal sponsorships and management services are partnerships for greater impact.

Impact Partners are supported in achieving their vision through our expert nonprofit management services and our innovative approaches to enable success. Funders, donors, and other partner stakeholders increase their impact through expanded collaboration, capacity, stability, and reach. We achieve our mission and scale our impact by empowering our Impact Partners and leveraging their expertise, connections, perspectives, innovation, entrepreneurial nature, and passion.

We have provided fiscal sponsorship and management services to dozens of programs and organizations since 2000, allowing our Impact Partners to focus on program activities and leverage additional support while we provide efficient back office support to manage grants, contributions, and earned income.
