Nature of Fiscal Sponsorship Services

In addition to implementing our own programs, RMFU provides fiscal sponsorship services on a case-by-case basis for projects and entities that are aligned with our mission. Fiscal sponsorship services are provided under a preapproved grantor-grantee model to allow small and emerging organizations who do not have 501(c)(3) status to apply for and receive funding from third parties. The Foundation maintains discretion over all funds received and maintains fiscal oversight that funds are used in a manner consistent with a project or entity’s application, any conditions set by the funding source, and a written agreement between the RMFU Foundation and the sponsored project or entity.
