“It was extremely helpful to have Hacker Fund act as our fiscal sponsor since most of the people on the Los Altos Hacks team were first-time hackathon organizers. As we recruited different sponsors, they managed our finances, which took a lot of pressure off our team and allowed us to focus more on quality of the actual event.”
- Selynna Sun, Lead Organizer @ Los Altos Hacks
Our mission is empower technologists to create public benefit by supporting their charitable projects through fiscal sponsorship in the following categories:
- Youth Development
- Arts & Culture
- Civic Engagement
Since 2014, we have enabled hackathons, community organizations, and mentorship programs to successfully serve over 10,000 students across 20 cities in the United States. Many of our sponsored projects are organized by students who do not have the resources to incorporate and manage an organization on their own. They look to us as their support system!
