Fiscal Sponsorship

Hopewell offers comprehensive fiscal sponsorship to projects that already exist as a legal entity but do not have tax-exempt status. While you run your operations, finances, and programs, Hopewell accepts donations into a restricted fund and grants them to organizations that support your mission.

Launching Charitable Initiatives

Our project hosting and incubation experience enables philanthropists to more quickly achieve social goals on even the most complex endeavors. Working in partnership with a dedicated project team, we will establish a restricted fund within Hopewell for your project and put together a suite of support to help you get your project off the ground and scale more quickly and cost-effectively than if you were launching a new nonprofit. Our team can provide full financial management, hiring and human resources support, and spinoff services should your project eventually benefit from becoming an independent entity.

Domestic and International Grant Making

Hopewell’s team executes domestic and international grant-making projects. Our expertise and sophisticated technological infrastructure enable us to monitor funds in real time and quickly move funds to on-the-ground initiatives so that grantees can implement their programs. Our entire grant-making cycle is 30 days or less, and our web-based grants administration allows applicants easy 24/7 access no matter where they are located.

Donor Collaboratives

Hopewell manages many projects on which multiple donors work toward a common goal. We provide a neutral platform that enables donors to work together efficiently. We have built collaboratives from the ground up and helped leading donors establish their project’s infrastructure, set up its advisory board, and coordinate advisory board members and project activities.


As a 501(c)(3) public charity, the Hopewell Fund has the capacity to engage in advocacy and a limited amount of lobbying. Hopewell’s projects can benefit from our staff and in-house counsel’s compliance expertise to launch campaigns that seek to impact policy at the state, federal, and international level. We also have the capability to host projects that focus on lobbying and political activities through our sister 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, the Sixteen Thirty Fund.
