Communities, movements, grassroots organizations, or other projects may need tax-exempt status from the IRS, but may not have or want it as an independent tax-exempt organization. Intermediaries who are tax-exempt (like Possibility Labs) help these organizations obtain donations by becoming their fiscal sponsors and acting as the legal entity receiving and deploying funds on their behalf. Fiscal sponsorship can include other administrative support as well, such as human resources and compliance oversight.

Community Governed Funds
A community governed loan fund (or community loan fund) is led by a community or as part of an organization’s programmatic work to disburse loans directly into the specific community where the governing board or organization is located. This gives the community access to high-risk and first loss capital to support multiple local projects.
Donor Advised Funds
Donors make charitable gifts to a sponsoring organization (like Possibility Labs) and then recommend how to redistribute those funds to organizations and movements. The sponsoring organization conducts due diligence on donor funding decisions and provides the resourcing infrastructure, lowering the inefficiencies of checkbook giving.
A group of stakeholders who collaboratively resource, govern, and lead all funding decisions for a fund benefiting a specific cause and its intersections. This group can include members of various organizations, individual funders, collectives of community leaders, or institutional funders who want to house a fund separate from their organization.
Integrated capital offers organizations a combination of different capital tools like grants, loans, investments, guarantees, and related, non-financial resources like advising and networks. These funding strategies help communities, movements, and donors obtain the diverse capital necessary to effect systematic change and transition to a new economy.
