National Network of Fiscal Sponsors


Organizational Overview
The National Network of Fiscal Sponsors (NNFS or the Network) is a professional network providing a community of practice for the field of fiscal sponsorship. The Network is 18 years old and is the industry-leading membership organization of the US
fiscal sponsorship field. NNFS convenes events, facilitates peer knowledge sharing, develops best- and next-practices, and advocates for the field inside the charitable sector and beyond. In 2021, the NNFS leadership funded an assessment of its potential for the field and began organizing steps to redesign NNFS. The leadership seeks for NNFS to become a better networked and supportive membership organization built around the priority of helping those in the field to be more effective and supported by its peers.

NNFS seeks to engage a consultant to serve as its first Network Coordinator. This is a one year engagement anticipated to begin April 1, 2023. There may be an opportunity to negotiate or extend the contract for a second year, dependent upon the interest of
both parties. Interested candidates are invited to respond to a Request for Proposals.


NNFS is fiscally sponsored by TSNE. 



Summary of the Work 

Qualified applicants will understand the fiscal sponsorship field, its diverse participants and both its inherent benefits and challenges. The consultant will be committed to making the National Network healthier, more connected and collaborative, and deepen relationships to create more value for its members. The NNFS Network Coordinator will do this by helping fiscal sponsorship organizations identify their shared interests and challenges, connect people strategically where there is potential for mutual benefit and serve as a resource and a catalyst for fiscal sponsor groups.


NNFS is working to unlock its exponential potential through greater collaboration. This will increase the collective actions of the network that no member could achieve on their own. Successful applicants will be able to commit 7-10 hours per week, from April 1, 2023 through March 31, 2024 and are expected to be able to flex up their weekly hourly commitment as needed to support the annual conference. In addition, they will be expected to be on-site during the annual conference.
