About The Park People and Fiscal Sponsorship
The Park People fiscally sponsors a number of Friends Groups. In essence we bring them under the umbrella of our organization and share our nonprofit status with them through a binding agreement. This situation allows them the opportunity, as a project of the Park People, to act as a 501 (c)(3) organization without all of the fiduciary responsibility of reporting to the State and Federal Governments. The Park People holds their funds in a restricted account and takes on the responsibility of all reporting. This way they can devote more of their volunteer efforts to caring for their parks!
