The Commons is not accepting new inquiries at this time.
Fiscal Sponsorship Criteria
The Commons uses Resist’s grantmaking guidelines in consideration for all fiscal sponsorship applicants. That being said, we intentionally hold nuance in reviewing each application.
- Their work is located within an ecology of social justice organizations. They are aware of how their work fits into a greater whole. Work reflects a clear understanding of purpose and function within movements for social change
- Have an intersectional / cross-issue analysis
- Work actively against white and Christian supremacy, capitalism, gender and sexual oppression, and all forms of patriarchy
- Are led by those most affected by structural oppression
Additionally, the Commons at this time prioritizes groups located in New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT). If you are interested in fiscal sponsorship and are outside New England, please contact us at email@example.com.
