One of the many things School Factory does is provide fiscal sponsorship.

 

Learn about how to get your space non-profit status on day one, so you can take grants and donations.

501(c)3 status is incredibly helpful when trying to make a difference in the world. It makes it easier for people to donate money to your cause, to qualify for most grants, and gives you access to an incredible set of resources. But it's also difficult to come by - lots of paperwork, lengthy process, and the cost of operations can make 501(c)3 status not worth the effort for smaller organizations.

Fiscal sponsorship allows a larger organization to umbrella smaller organizations. Your organization gets all the benefits with far less hassle. The School Factory tracks all the legal paperwork and makes sure your donors get receipts. We'll even help with the paperwork and tax filings - we take a very small cut (10%) of larger donations to cover the legal and administrative fees of managing your non-profit status.
