About Us

Founded in 2021, Evergreen Social Impact is a nonprofit fiscal sponsor organization that provides fiduciary services, including governance, funds management, and other administrative services to projects with social-impact missions. We can act as a long-term administrative home for tax-exempt and public/private partnership entities, or as a ‘nonprofit incubator’ for new charitable projects that are in start-up mode.

We are a small but mighty team that values flexibility, dependability, a can-do approach to our work, respect for ourselves and others, and a healthy work-life balance.
