Fiscal Sponsorships

Let’s Build Something Together

District Bridges provides fiscal sponsorship services to emerging community-based nonprofit initiatives focused on community-based economic development and placemaking. Through our fiscal sponsorship services, we provide fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services to help build the capacity of emerging initiatives. We work with our fiscal sponsorship partners to help chart a course that helps them build capacity and sustainability while they navigate the challenges of the start-up phase.

Beyond the financial and administrative support offered through fiscal sponsorship, we also work with our partners to support their development in a variety of other areas such as:

Board Development & Training

Serving on a nonprofit board of directors can be a deeply fulfilling experience. Most board members join an organization because they believe in the mission and vision and want to contribute their skills in a meaningful way. Our team of seasoned nonprofit professionals have worked with organizations of all sizes and stages of development from start-up to multi-national nonprofits. Whether you are looking to develop a board and recruit new members or training your existing board to empower them to better serve the organization, our team can help set your board up for success.

Workplanning & Budgeting

The challenge many nonprofit organizations face is that they have a clear mission but there are a thousand ways they could achieve that mission. Strategic planning helps you identify where you’re going but a workplan helps you figure out the nuts and bolts of how you actually do it. Our team will work with your organization to identify, prioritize, and set realistic goals that can be achieved in a single year. We will then help you set realistic budgets to ensure you have the necessary resources to achieve your workplan.

Strategic Planning & Fundraising Development

Strategic planning is critical to your organization achieving your mission. Through our strategic planning process, we work with your organization to identify your goals and develop an actionable plan to move you from where you are to where you want to go. Once we have that roadmap we will also help you develop a fundraising strategy that will ensure you have the resources you need to achieve your goals.

Leadership Development & Executive Coaching

Running a nonprofit can be all-consuming and isolating. Many executive directors find themselves investing all of their time and energy into the communities they serve but have no one who is investing in them. Our leadership development & executive coaching provides nonprofit executives with real tools that help manage the multitude of balls you have to juggle and help you develop new leadership skills along the way. Our goal is to help passionate nonprofit professionals develop skills to ensure they can run the marathon that is nonprofit leadership.

IRS Nonprofit Designation Application Support

To become a legally designated nonprofit organization by the IRS you must submit an application. We can help support your initiative in pulling together all the documents and narratives you’ll need to submit for that application.

Internal Systems Evaluation & Optimization

No matter what sector you are in your most valuable resource is time. So stop wasting your most valuable resources because you haven’t optimized your internal systems. Our team can help you evaluate your internal and external processes to help you streamline organizational operations to free up more time for you to focus on your mission.
