SharedGeo Extends Fiscal Sponsorship to the U.S. National Grid Institute
In early March, SharedGeo’s Board of Directors voted to accept the U.S. National Grid Institute (USNGI) as its first Fiscal Sponsorship project.
Through this IRS legally defined arrangement, SharedGeo is able to extend its IRS tax exempt status to another effort it believes will evolve into becoming a self-standing nonprofit with a mission that is inline with that of SharedGeo’s.
The mission of the USNGI is: “…to promote awareness and use of the U.S. National Grid standard as the nation’s primary geo-location coordinate system and ‘language of location’ for emergency response, data analysis, asset management and public mapping.”
In addition to putting in place a contract that defines the operating relationship, SharedGeo has created an online donation webpage which will directly benefit the USNGI. Click here to learn more about the USNGI and donate.
