Mission: ESI works to strengthen mission-driven organizations and achieve enduring impact in the Pacific Northwest by developing shared infrastructure and expertise, building a culture of partnership, and advancing equity.
Evergreen Social Impact (ESI) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, founded in 2021 to fiscally sponsor public/private partnerships and charitable projects in the Pacific Northwest. We provide fiduciary services, including governance, funds management, and other administrative services to projects with social-impact missions. Our inaugural project was the Andy Hill CARE Fund, a public/private partnership created by the Washington State Legislature to promote and fund cancer research in the state of Washington, and we have since expanded to include two additional projects.
Through fiscal sponsorship, projects operate under and utilize ESI’s 501(c)(3) status, enabling projects to solicit tax-deductible donations, apply for grants and operate mission-driven programs.
ESI’s strategy is to have a small number of local projects ensuring individual attention for projects to prosper.
We have a unique competence in administering complex federal, state, and local grants, including compliance. Our leadership team has more than 30 years’ experience in nonprofit operations. Areas of expertise include:
- Finance and Governance
- Human Resources
- Grants and Philanthropy
