NCO recognizes that fiscal sponsorships are a useful tool to help develop new services that strengthen our community and to help create a healthy and self-sustaining community that inspires individuals to reach their highest potential. All fiscal sponsorships must be aligned with NCO's mission, and each fiscal sponsorship is assigned an NCO employee to act as liaison and provide oversight. The NCO Governing Board authorizes all fiscal sponsorship agreements.
Fiscal sponsorships vary in size and scope. Many strive to become a permanent program of NCO, while others work toward becoming an independent nonprofit. Some are short-term and/or grant-funded projects that have a specific end date. No matter a fiscal sponsorship's purpose or goals, it will receive the same services and oversight from NCO as its parent organization.
