Fees and Minimums

Learn about the fees and fundraising requirements for fiscal sponsorship.

Making Nonprofit Affordable

Sponsorship Fees

While nonprofit administration costs can swallow as much as 20-40% of a nonprofit’s budget, fiscal sponsorship offers an affordable alternative. In support of comprehensive administrative services, Community Initiatives charges 10% of gross revenues. Due to the complexity of the reporting requirements, Community Initiatives charges 15% for government funds. Contact us to learn more about our fees.

Fundraising Minimum

Community Initiatives has the breadth and ability to serve projects of a variety of sizes. While we serve a number projects with annual budgets in the millions, all projects in our network must fulfill a minimum annual fundraising requirement of $24,000.

“I feel proud to be associated with an organization like Community Initiatives that operates with excellence and values out front. Thank you to the entire leadership and staff team and to the board of directors for all you’ve done to be of service to our project.”
