Alliance for Global Justice
By 1998 it was becoming confusing for activists and donors alike that a group called Nicaragua Network was the “parent” organization for two projects with global reach. We had a contest for a new name and Alliance for Global Justice was the name selected. We incorporated under the new name and when we received IRS designation as a tax-exempt, non-profit, the Nicaragua Network gave up its own legal existence and transferred its assets to AfGJ, becoming a project of the Alliance.
Fiscal sponsorship services are offered to grassroots non-profits that agree with the afgj vision and mission statements but do not have their own 501(c)(3) status. The purpose of the fiscal sponsorship services is to help the progressive movement grow and gain more influence on regional, national, and international levels. Afgj has about 100 different groups in this program. Afgj acts as a parent and provides help to these groups administratively which allows the groups to concentrate on their mission, growth, and accomplishing their goals. Afgj helps this effort by making the donations to these groups tax-deductible to the donor, offering tax assistance, donation collection and processing, payroll services, group health insurance, liability insurance, and a listing on the afgj website.
