Keeping Charities Focused on Their Mission, Not Paperwork
A fiscal sponsor is a nonprofit organization that provides financial oversight and
other administrative services to help build the capacity of charitable projects.
The Foundation is currently the fiscal sponsor for 13 awesome community
organizations. One of the groups we sponsor is Friends of the West Fork Winter
Recreation, who ensures the West Fork road is plowed and available for
winter recreation. Judith Gregory initiated the fiscal sponsorship and shared
this, “Supporters can now contribute to the Friends through the Foundation
and Friends can participate in the Fun Run which provides a platform to
broadcast our message and solicit tax-deductible contributions for the
plowing. ” Fiscal Sponsorship is one way the Foundation is working to build
community. By managing resources and enabling donations to be
tax-deductible, an organization can continue to expand its reach and focus
on its charitable mission. To learn more, email Abby at email@example.com.
Ready, Set, GO Fun Run 15!
Each year community members come together with the Fun Run to support
the amazing work local nonprofits are doing to improve the quality of life for all
of Red Lodge. The Fun Run is a great way to raise money spending less of your
time and other resources. Red Lodge Ice has been participating in the Fun Run
for 9 years. “Each year, Red Lodge Ice raises roughly 60% of its funds during
the Fun Run event. Without the help of Fun Run fundraising, Red Lodge Ice
would not have been able to operate over the last 10 years. This fundraising
impact allows us to buy new rink liners when needed, maintain snow
blowers and other ice maintenance equipment.” Andy Simpson, Red Lodge
Ice. You don’t have to have a 501c3 to participate as long as your cause is
charitable. If you are interested in participating as a charity in the Fun Run, visit
our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due April 3rd 2018.
