About Us

As a comprehensive fiscal sponsor, we take on all legal and fiduciary responsibility for the nonprofit project, its employees and its activities.

Who We Are

Supporting Hundreds of Projects for Over 25 Years

We provide comprehensive administrative services that significantly reduce the administrative burden on projects in our network. What does “comprehensive” mean? Financial management, human resources, payroll, and health insurance, liability insurance, legal services, grant management support, tax compliance and management, and online fundraising dashboards. We handle it all.

Our Mission

What Makes Us Different

Community Initiatives acts as a thought-partner and provides professional services to nonprofit startups, established initiatives, networks, and collaborations. We sponsor projects for the benefit of communities in service to social change.

In Service to Great Ideas

The Core of Who We Are
