Fiscal Sponsorship Emerging Nonprofits Cohort

Nonprofits are formed to do important, mission-focused work, and establishing a strong organizational foundation contributes to their success and impact. At the same time, we know that launching a new nonprofit is hard work—and the choice to establish a 501(c)(3) organization can mean taking on additional responsibilities in service of your mission. While we can’t make the work easy, Propel is committed to providing the infrastructure, tools, and knowledge you need to succeed.

Through fiscal sponsorship, we see common needs, goals, and questions. Propel’s Emerging Nonprofits Cohorts provide space and resources to explore relevant nonprofit topics, while building strong, supportive relationships with peers.

Applications for the 2023-24 cohort are now closed. Organizations fiscally sponsored by Propel are eligible to apply when cohort opportunities open. There is no cost for participation outside the regular costs associated with Propel’s Fiscal Sponsorship Program (details here).

What are the benefits?

  • Monthly gatherings focused on connecting and learning together.
  • Topics determined by cohort needs and will include budgeting, fundraising, board governance, strategic planning, etc.
  • Built-in work time to support progress for your organization
  • Space to share your story and be supported/support other nonprofit leaders
  • The option to be connected to a mentor
