Organization description:
Foundry Community Foundation (formerly Nonprofit Hub Foundation) empowers those on the frontlines working for the good of our communities by working toward our mission of fueling the impact and effectiveness of nonprofits with guidance, expertise, and capital. Our fiscal sponsorship program works with mission-driven organizations, projects, causes, and collaborations to build infrastructure, set goals, and develop sustainable models. We partner with individuals or groups looking to advance their causes and uplift their communities to give them the tools and building blocks to run a nonprofit. Foundry Community Foundation serves as a champion of your mission and works with you to get your project or nonprofit off to a strong start. Fiscal Sponsorship may be an option for you, even if you plan to eventually apply for your own 501(c)(3) status.
