FISCAL SPONSORSHIP

As a Fiscal Sponsor we are the liaison between the applicant/grantee and the County of Maui and the State of Hawaii Tourism Authority.  We help and/or assist with the strict guidelines and process of applying, contract approvals, reports submission, reimbursement requests and payments. By having us do this, it enables the grantee to fully focus on their program or event.

Here are some of the events/programs that we've worked with:

  • Festivals of Aloha

  • Small Town, Big Art

  • NoHo Ka Wai Nona

  • Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival

Fiscal Sponsorship allows a nonprofit agency, which has been deemed as an exempt public charity by the Internal Revenue Service, to be a fiscal sponsor of a nonexempt community project. The charity must have been awarded its tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and have a legally binding agreement with the project. With that agreement, the fiscal sponsor can receive gifts and grants for that project and provide donors with evidence of their tax-deductible contribution-a game changer that encourages donations for valuable community projects.

The fiscal sponsor must be in the controlling position, and the nonexempt project must act so as to further the charity’s exempt purposes. The bottom line is the binding relationship among donor, fiscal sponsor and project.
