Fiscal Sponsorship

The Sierra Fund supports key efforts in the Sierra by providing fiscal sponsorship of certain projects.

By filling the role of fiscal sponsor, we allow projects to move forward that would not otherwise have a nonprofit vehicle through which to receive a grant.  Alternatively, we provide this role to certain collaborative projects that multiple nonprofits are involved in.

For all our fiscal sponsorship projects, we ensure that grant funds and other donations to the project are properly managed, and serve other project management and partner coordination functions as needed.

Projects that The Sierra Fund currently serves as fiscal sponsor include:

  • Deer Creek Tribute Trail
  • Bear Creek Watershed Group
  • Bodie Hills Conservation Partnership
  • Local Water Stays Local
  • South Tahoe Public Utility District
  • Sierra Water Workgroup
  • CABY IRWM Implementation Projects

Past projects we have served include:
