Fiscal Sponsorship

Giving charitable projects a platform for growth.

NPT offers comprehensive fiscal sponsorship for emerging charitable projects. Fiscal sponsorship is a collaborative relationship in which a charitable project partners with a public charity to receive tax-deductible donations and access to a network of support.  

What NPT Offers

NPT’s fiscal sponsorship offering is designed to offer guidance and flexibility. Our in-house team of experts handles a broad array of administrative duties like HR and finance and offers strategic support, so the project can focus on its mission. NPT provides legal and fiduciary oversight and absorbs most of the risk involved in launching a new charitable project, affording project leaders more time to hone their vision, and greater opportunity to amplify their impact. 

Project leaders can also access a menu of best-in-class advisory and consultative services as needed to scale the project, drawing on NPT’s deep bench of philanthropic professionals. Lending both operational and strategic expertise, NPT works with project leaders to customize the best support system to achieve their charitable goals.

A Platform for Collaboration 

In the last decade, philanthropy has experienced a surge in collaboration. Collaborative partnerships allow individuals, foundations and corporations with shared charitable goals to work together toward ambitious outcomes. NPT has hosted donor collaboratives for more than 15 years, and is proud to offer fiscal sponsorship as a uniquely effective model for these partnerships.  


100,000 Opportunities Initiative


The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is one of the largest employer-led opportunity youth focused coalitions in the U.S. This broad coalition brings together employers and community partners who strive to connect with young job seekers, hire opportunity youth and help businesses to thrive.


Across the nation, there are 4.5 million opportunity youth aged 16-24 who are out of school, ready to work and filled with potential. The 100,000 Opportunities Initiative is connecting these youth with more than 55 nationwide companies seeking to build their talent pipeline. The partner employers are dedicated in their commitment to hire opportunity youth, develop their job skills and build their pathway to success. The goal for the 100K initiative is to connect over 1 million opportunity youth with jobs by 2021.


NPT serves as the comprehensive fiscal sponsor for this project, allowing the staff and stakeholders of 100,000 Opportunities to focus on convening catalytic events to bring youth and employers together.
