Today, I'm excited and grateful to announce that OperationSTART has officially joined forces with the San Francisco Education Fund as our new fiscal sponsor. We've come a long way, from launching during a global pandemic to building OperationSTART into the powerful tool it is today, giving students the power to discover what they love through enrichment opportunities.
We wouldn't have made it this far without the dedication of our team and all the hard work.
Picking a new fiscal sponsor was not an easy decision to make. Before reaching out to the San Francisco Education Fund, the founding team had many considerations and conversations internally. Ultimately, we reached out to the San Francisco Education Fund to seek a fiscal sponsorship because they aligned with our mission. The SF Ed Fund will be providing OperationSTART administrative startup support.
We look forward to collaborating with the San Francisco Education Fund team.
So what does a new fiscal sponsorship mean?
