Project Incubation

The New Venture Fund works exclusively on projects that we believe will address a pressing social need. We work with donors and social entrepreneurs to quickly begin delivering on their charitable missions while managing accounting and maintaining compliance through a fiscal sponsorship.


NVF works with projects in both streamlined and comprehensive fiscal sponsorship models. In a streamlined fiscal sponsorship, a project runs its own operations, while NVF accepts donations to support the project’s activities and confirms that the project’s activities are charitable and educational. With comprehensive fiscal sponsorship, NVF hosts the project’s operations, providing financial account management and oversight, in addition to other support.
