The National Network of Fiscal Sponsors Steering Committee, Partner and Member organizations are listed below. The NNFS is comprised of organizations that are broadly representative of the models and missions in the practice of fiscal sponsorship across the country.
The Steering Committee guides, governs and sets priorities for the NNFS, developing strategic planning and and delivering programming for the network.
NNFS Partners are experienced fiscal sponsors who have completed an extensive self-evaluation of their best practices designed by the NNFS Steering Committee, and provide leadership and input on the development of NNFS activities and events. If your organization is interested in becoming an NNFS Partner, please email the Network Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org .
NNFS is currently piloting a new membership level open to both individuals and organizations. To become an NNFS member, please complete the NNFS Member Registration Form.
Member organizations are fiscal sponsors who want to build their fiscal sponsorship capacity, join a learning community, and network with other fiscal sponsors. Member organizations are also other nonprofit and for-profit organizations, such as foundations, management support organizations, or legal or accounting firms who have a substantial professional stake in the practice of fiscal sponsorship.

Member individuals are those (board members, staff, volunteers) who are part of an fiscal sponsorship organization that is not an NNFS organization member, and whose work will be improved by participating in knowledge-sharing and field-building. They may also be interested professionals who work in or adjacent to the field, such as attorneys, accountants, funders, consultants, social entrepreneurs, or staff at non-fiscal sponsor nonprofits, who are interested in supporting the practice of fiscal sponsorship and deepening their individual understanding of the field.
