I don’t have a 501(c)3 designation yet but would like to participate. What can I do?

NewsMatch is open to active members of the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN). As such, organizations that are not yet 501(c)3 federally recognized nonprofits can secure the services of a 501(c)3 organization in order to ensure that they are operating within the accepted guidelines for nonprofits and in order to accept grants on behalf of NewsMatch.

INN offers fiscal sponsorship to a select number of applicants that do not yet have either their own nonprofit determination letter from the IRS or a fiscal sponsor but which otherwise meet the criteria for membership.
