What's Your Charitable Side Project? 

 

We are a nonprofit incubator and social change accelerator. Our work supports individuals, organizations, and institutions focused on social change as they try to begin to identify, utilize, and add to the existing assets of their community. Since 2012, we have helped hundreds of small and start-up grassroots nonprofit organizations establish a strong foundation by helping them with legal and operational challenges. 
Fiscal Sponsorship

 

Nonprofits and grassroot efforts operate big ideas on small budgets. We work with new community based projects to identify assets, to chart their social change strategic plan and to develop evaluation model that captures a project's social impact.

Legal & Compliance

 

We build capacity at small and start-up charitable and philanthropic organizations by providing legal, compliance and operational support. This includes corporate formation, obtaining tax-exempt status, charitable solicitation registration, executive compensation and other corporate and tax legal issues nonprofits must navigate. 

Training & Education

 

We provide resources, training and technical assistance to nonprofit leaders and social change agents. Trainings focus on legal issues faced by nonprofits,, community organizing strategies, inclusion for all people and more. Many courses are approved for continuing legal education credit.
