Supporting local LGBTQ+ projects and organizations
Fiscal sponsorship is a relationship in which Cream City Foundation enters into an agreement with another organization or project that aligns to our overall mission. Through this relationship, the sponsored organization is able to accept tax-exempt gifts as well as leverage Cream City Foundation’s accounting and donation infrastructure.
Cream City Foundation is proud to have a long history of serving as fiscal sponsor for various projects and organizations in Wisconsin. Many of these organizations have grown to become their own 501c3 entities. Our most recent example is Out Families, which operated for several years under Cream City Foundation as “Miltown LGBT Families”.
