Fiscal Sponsorship  |  Services, community mobilizing, and fundraising expertise for park groups

The San Francisco Parks Alliance (SFPA) provides fiscal sponsorship to community groups whose missions align with SFPA’s own. As a fiscal sponsor, SFPA allows community groups to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Since most grant-makers fund organizations, but not individuals, fiscal sponsorship helps groups raise money without having to go through the complicated process of starting their own nonprofit. SFPA staff also assist with project management, grant management, referrals to contractors, fundraising consultation, and insurance needs as appropriate.
