What We Do

The Partnership Project is working to create a stronger, more connected, and more equitable environmental movement.

Helping environmental partners focus on their mission

We work behind the scenes, supporting organizations dedicated to environmental protection, by providing fiscal sponsorship, infrastructure support, and cross-organization collaboration — allowing them to focus on their work. 

That means we help organizations process donations, establish payroll systems, set up email addresses, and provide health insurance and other benefits for their staff. Like a coordinated campaign for the environment, we connect campaigns working toward similar goals and provide them with  a full suite of services and resources, so our partners can focus on their work. 

In other words, we ensure those working toward environmental progress have greater capacity for that work, knowing that every minute not spent on internal or administrative work can be spent achieving their mission.

What is a fiscal sponsor?

A fiscal sponsor is a nonprofit organization that provides fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services to support the activities of groups, coalitions, or campaigns.
