Understanding

what we sponsor

Application Timeline

Applications are considered on an ongoing basis. There is no submission deadline. The review of your application will take place within one to two weeks of submission. You will receive notice of the decision within one to two weeks of submitting your application.

For example: I apply for sponsorship on Feb. 1st; the review takes place within two weeks; I am accepted into the program on or before February 14th. This is the longest range of time it would normally take to get sponsored.

What Do We Sponsor?

TCN supports fiscally sponsored projects that are consistent with an IRS-approved charitable mission. The term “project” is used very broadly, and may refer to a one-time project, an ongoing project or collaboration.

What Can’t We Sponsor?

  • Award programs, grant programs, scholarship programs, or any other scenario in which you’ll be re-granting the money you receive from us.
  • Commercial projects with the primary goal of making money.
  • Projects that do not align with our geographical service area or that are not mission centric to TCN.

What is the Relationship Between TCN and its Sponsored Projects?

Fiscal sponsorship has many different models and programs differ. TCN’ fiscal sponsorship program is structured as a grantor-grantee relationship. In our program, sponsored projects are treated as separate legal entities that are responsible for their own tax returns, employment taxes, insurance, debts, liabilities and other legal obligations. Although fiscal sponsorship does not give projects 501(c)(3) status, it does enable them to access many of the benefits of TCN' 501(c)(3) status.

TCN does not judge your work’s quality or merit. TCN provides a legal and efficient mechanism for funders and donors to support charitable organizations.

What are people saying?

The information was presented in a way that made it easy to understand and got you motivated to participate!

I have participated in various trainings over the years and it’s the first time I learned something that I could immediately implement into my work!

The workshop was not only a training but also a team builder. I learned how to improve my skills and more about my coworkers!
