Fiscal Sponsorship is a cost effective way for individuals to implement new programs, start new organizations and test new approaches for social change in a community. Goodcity uses the fiscal sponsorship to help individuals start something new without starting a separate nonprofit organization or while they are waiting for their nonprofit status to be finalized through the federal government.
