SEE offers services to manage the back-end infrastructure of your nonprofit
to ensure best practices are followed, oversight is maintained, and filings are
kept up to date. The practices are of particular interest to large funders to
ensure donations and grants will be managed according to best practices

The fiscal sponsorship services offered by SEE are sustained by allocating
6.5% of revenue raised by your project. Basically, you pay as you go with
SEE since the fees are based on revenue.
