Need a Fiscal Sponsorship? Know Someone Who Does? 

The Learners Lab launched its Fiscal Sponsorship Program last year with great success. We are very pleased to announce the application period for 2017 is open. TLL will continue to foster partnerships that meet a wide range of needs for US entities pursuing tax exempt status and to young exempt entities that still require a little help. 

To qualify, you should be at the pre or post start-up stage, or less than 2 year old based on the date of your determination letter. We are particularly focused on helping entities who have not yet filed or submitted their Form 1023 or 1024 application For Tax Exempt Status, or those who only require grant and contribution processing services. In the future we will be providing fully furnished shared office space, corporate identity, and technology resources for the duration of the program tenure for Awardees who need it. 

There is a nominal, non-refundable application fee to cover processing cost, a rolling, ongoing review and selection cycle, and an official registration process, form and fee to defray initial launch costs. 

An Awardees Fiscal Sponsorship Program will be unique to the entity, customized to each Awardees specific need, and may include the guidance of a Mentor-Partners when required. 

The duration shall be a little as 6 months, but no longer than 2-years / 24 months. Grant/Donation only programs, or "Model C" Fiscal Sponsorships can be 6-months, with no more than 3 consecutive 6-month extension or the entire 2-years/24 months as you await our the IRS processing time. 

For more information about the program visit our Fiscal Sponsorship page, and to apply, download the application from TLL 2017 Fiscal Sponsorship Program Application.
