Comparing FS and 501c3

As a Fiscal Sponsor, Inquiring Systems, Inc. (ISI) provides administrative and regulatory expertise, the corporate shield of protection, along with liability insurance and tax-exempt status.

ISI differs from almost all other nonprofit Fiscal Sponsors in that we promote the retention of responsibility and authority within the projects we sponsor, while we draw accountability up through the system. We believe this offers the best method for preparing new nonprofit projects for long-term viability. That said, ISI is happy to assist with business management services as needed.

We would love to talk with you about your unique situation. Contact us to learn more about fiscal sponsorship opportunities with ISI.
