We are fiscally sponsored by the Fund for the City of New York. Fiscal sponsorship is a common mechanism in the non-profit sector that enables organizations to launch new programs without needing to complete the full process of establishing a new legal entity. As we grow, we will be evaluating the best organizational setup.
