Strong City offers fiscal management to existing nonprofit organizations with independent 501(c)(3) status. Fiscally managed clients receive many of the same, essential back office support  services as fiscally sponsored projects, while maintaining an independent nonprofit organization. Through shared services, Strong City can provide high-quality accounting, bookkeeping, donor management, and donation acknowledgement services for less than the market rate.
