Fiscal Sponsorships

Thank you for your interest in our Fiscal Sponsorship program!  We are taking the first quarter of 2016 to revise our fiscal sponsorship systems so that we can support our sponsorees in the best way possible.  Please check back in early April for updated information.
About Fiscal Sponsorships at Q Center:
Q Center’s Fiscal Sponsorship program supports projects that complement our mission, vision, and values. Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which Q Center, as a 501(c)(3) public charity,sponsors a project that may lack exempt status. This alternative to starting your own nonprofit allows you to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under your sponsor’s exempt status.
Most foundation funding is awarded to nonprofits rather than to individuals, so affiliating yourself with an organization or obtaining a fiscal sponsor can increase your likelihood of receiving funding. A fiscal sponsorship with Q Center is a clearly defined business agreement that benefits both parties. The purpose of the Fiscal Sponsorship program is to incubate and uplift smaller and startup organizations that we believe will strengthen Portland’s LGBTQ community ecosystem.
