Fiscal Sponsorship

For startup or small projects that do not have their own 501c3 designation from the IRS, Circle of Life can help you!  We provide fiscal sponsorships to a wide range of charitable projects. Circle of Life can serve as your fiscal agent so your project is able to accept grants and other tax-deductible contributions.

A fiscal sponsor is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides fiduciary oversight, financial and administrative services to support aligned charitable projects.  Fiscal sponsors perform many different administrative functions on behalf of the sponsored organization or program, including taking on the responsibility of receiving and administering charitable contributions on behalf of the sponsored organization. Learn more about fiscal sponsorship here.

If you have a charitable project that is seeking donations but does not have its own 501c3 nonprofit exemption, a fiscal sponsor may be a good option.

Unfortunately Circle of Life is no longer accepting fiscal sponsorship projects.  Please go to the Fiscal Sponsor Directory (LINK TO: for a list of fiscal sponsor organizations.
