Benefits of Using Foundation as Fiscal Agent

“It has been terrific to have some of our Johnson funds managed by the Foundation’s fiscal agency program. It is a relief to know that our donated funds are being handled appropriately and in line with District guidelines. I am very appreciative that this service is offered!”
