fiscal sponsorship

WFCN is the fiscal sponsor for a variety of grassroots associations and developing nonprofits whose mission aligns in significant ways to our own mission.  The following organizations are sponsored associations who have signed individualized fiscal sponsorship agreements with us.  They are officially projects under WFCN’s 501 (c) 3 status, though they maintain a sense of autonomy as they plan, implement and coordinate work within their unique communities.
