Our fiscal sponsorship program is one of the many ways that we support humanitarian activists, people who use the power of media and education to inspire global and social change.
Fiscal Sponsorship enables your project to receive grants and tax-deductible contributions, including monetary and in-kind donations, through our status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Our fiscal sponsorship program is one of the many ways that Expressions of Humanity Foundation supports humanity activists who use the power of education and media to inspire positive global and social change. Your project will tell the story of catalyzation, action and change.
To provide the most supportive framework possible, we research best practices from other organizations offering fiscal sponsorship. We encourage our sponsorship recipients to tap into our global network to find the help they need as they transform their humanitarian vision into reality.
We enable you access to grants and tax-deductible contributions without you having to go through the time-consuming and administrative challenges of establishing a 501(c)(3) organization. We accept donations online and by check. Like all fiscal sponsors, Expressions of Humanity Foundation retains a percentage of all funds raised to cover legal, accounting and administrative costs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How does disbursement of donations work?
A: EOHF will mail a check in the name of humanitarian activist project (HAP) by the 15th of each month for collections from the preceding month. Your project will receive funds processed online, through our partner Network for Good, two months after they have been collected.
*All distributions from EOHF are subject to 1099 reporting. If you become a C Corporation or S Corporation, no 1099 is filed under law. However, individuals and partnerships do receive a 1099 from EOHF. The theory behind this treatment is that EOHF contracts businesses such as HAP projects to perform specific program services, and you are actively engaged in a for-profit business. There are tax-planning strategies that support income deferral. Please seek further explanation from your accountant about your specific situation.
