Social Good Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to create and establish positive influences for individuals, communities, and the environment. Our goal is to sponsor projects that will help positively impact and develop local communities into healthier and happier places to live, work, and be.

We achieve this mission through the practice of efficient, effective, low-barrier, high-quality fiscal sponsorship. (Learn more about fiscal sponsorship.)

Beginning with one half-time employee in 2014 and zero revenue, Social Good Fund has now grown into a mature, full-service fiscal sponsorship organization with over a dozen full-time core operations employees, over 400 sponsored project employees, and annual revenue of over $60M. We serve as fiscal sponsor to hundreds of nonprofit/charitable programs and projects across a wide diversity of focus and content, in a host of geographic locations both domestically and abroad.  

Demand for our services continues to grow, as does the necessity for the organization to add capacity to meet the demand.


The Organization: Working at Social Good Fund

Although we are a remote team, we may provide the opportunity to travel for in-person convenings once or twice per year. 

Our organizational approach applies both to how we practice fiscal sponsorship, and how we operate and work together to achieve our mission: It assumes best intentions and seeks to continuously act in good faith. We strive for efficiency in order to decrease barriers to realizing positive change in the world. We are a focused, friendly and helpful team, and we’re looking for an equally disposed person to join us.
