For Sponsorship Seekers:

Our new fiscal sponsorship model identifies your needs and follows your lead.

Nafasi Fund is a Black-led organization helping Black-led organizations like yours to build power and efficacy. There are no hoops to jump through. We handle the myriad institutional requirements of public and private funders, freeing you to focus on the projects that matters most to your organization.


Our inspiration:

We are inspired by Black-led organizations spearheading racial equity and social change.

Black-led community initiatives have long operated solely on the wisdom, strength, and tenacity of the community. More often than not, they see a need and fill it without financial support from outside sources. Nafasi Fund provides the 501(c)(3) and audit-worthy infrastructure you need to be eligible for funding that supports your transformative work.

With Nafasi Fund as your fiscal home, your organization will be positioned for greater, sustainable impact. Our highly-qualified team prides itself on building deep relationships with our partners and we will always be accessible to you to ensure that your work is supported.

Our approach:

We offer low-fee fiscal sponsorship paired with technical assistance & healing resources.

Working with a fiscal sponsor solves the immediate problem of grant eligibility but does little to ensure that the organizations that use them ever become self-sufficient. In addition to low-fee fiscal sponsorship, your organization will receive tailored administrative and infrastructure support for your current projects, robust technical assistance to help you move to sustainability (if you desire), and the space in which to focus on your well-being.

Connect to space

Nafasi Fund hosts a week-long annual retreat so that Black leaders audaciously spearheading social change can prioritize their wellness and avoid burnout. The Healing Retreat for Black Leaders provides a safe space for the leaders of fiscally sponsored organizations that centers their physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
