In 2014, CascadiaNow! will become an official umbrella 501(c)3 organization. We will provide tools and services to help empower all forms of Cascadia organizing, including groups, projects and events. We will also provide support for a wide range of community partners and organizations.
To start, we will be providing fiscal sponsorships, but as we are successful we will increase our services for our partnerships.
Ultimately, we want to cultivate a culture of engagement and provide all back end support that any group, project, and even other non-profits need, including:
- Trainings and regional events
- Event planning
- Graphic design and marketing
- Grant writing and fundraising development
- Accounting and financial services
- Technical Assistance
- Research, writing and publishing
- When available, direct investment
It is our goal to provide you with the tools necessary to make your project or organization succeed for the betterment of everyone living in the Cascadia bioregion.
Want your project or event to receive official CascadiaNow! backing?
If your project is directly related to Cascadia, and has some interesting or unique element, mark in your fiscal sponsorship application that you want to be considered for an official CascadiaNow! project and our board will review your your request.
Official projects are a direct extension of our group, receive direct assistance and are listed in our website, and receive full support through social media, as well as for outreach and fundraising.
Keep in mind that groups don't need to be related specifically to Cascadia to receive Fiscal Sponsorship or our services - but only Cascadia related projects will be considered for official backing of our organization.
