Fiscal Sponsorships

The EveryLibrary Institute can help you launch your great library idea without creating a whole new organization or 501c3.

The EveryLibrary Institute supports new and creative initiatives for social change by sponsoring mission-aligned projects that don't yet have, or may not even want to have, their own 501(c)3 status. 

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization ourselves, the EveryLibrary Institute acts as a fiscal sponsor or fiscal agent for smaller organizations or projects that either do not have or do not want to become a registered 501(c)3 themselves. The main condition for a fiscal sponsorship is that our programs are complementary and that the work being done by the organization (or group of individuals) aligns with our mission, purpose, and charter.

The EveryLibrary Institute has provided fiscal sponsorship for a number of library projects, including a campaign to enable and support grant recipients of the Awesome Libraries project, raise emergency funding for the Ridgeland Public Library (MS), provide fundraising support to the Connecticut Library Association for its annual appeals, project sponsorship for the Delaware Division of Libraries, and ongoing stewardship of donor funds for the Patmos Library (MI).

Don't hesitate to get in touch with the EveryLibrary Institute's executive director John Chrastka to discuss ways we can help support your needs and goals.
