The Process for Becoming a CS&S Project
Becoming a fiscally sponsored project can take a month or six months, depending on the existing structure of a project. Generally, the process looks like this:
- Project expresses interest in joining CS&S. We evaluate based on project funding, mission alignment, and impact on project and CS&S.
- Project leader(s) meet with CS&S executive directors to understand long-term mission alignment and project strategy.
- After both parties agree the relationship will be mutually beneficial we move on to the more formal steps.
- Project creates an advisory committee and establishes bylaws.
- CS&S does due-diligence on project financial statements, fundraising strategy, and value alignment.
- Project leader submits application package to CS&S
- CS&S board approves project.
- Project advisory committee signs CS&S agreement and policies (below).
- We announce and begin the on-boarding process!
