Fiscal Projects

OVERVIEW

The Ed Fund is proud to provide 501(C)(3) fiscal sponsorship to a range of WCCUSD schools, departments, and education-focused projects-nearly 25 sponsorships to date.

Fiscal Sponsorship may be the right choice for you if you want to focus on your project without having to worry about grant management, operational staff, insurance coverage, and human resources expertise.  Fiscal sponsorship allows you the opportunity to devote your time to what matters to you—serving the students and schools of West Contra Costa.
