Fiscal Sponsorship Application

Common Good provides fiscal sponsorship for compatible, mission-aligned organizations and projects working for social, racial, environmental, and economic justice. This allows you to accept tax-deductible contributions without having to apply to the IRS for nonprofit status. Common Good provides some extra benefits and charges a lower fee than most other fiscal sponsors. Complete this form to apply, or give us a call.

If your project already has a Common Good account, sign in to that account before applying.
