Managing the fiscal and administrative responsibilities of a public health initiative can be a complex and time-consuming burden that diverts precious staff and resources away from your core efforts and objectives. At Trailhead Institute, we serve as a flexible, administrative portal for fiscal sponsorship and for reporting of grants or contracts for individual community organizations and collaborations. Our approach allows you to leverage our administrative services while maintaining full control over your projects. We also serve as a strategic business partner for government agencies and universities, facilitating community-based projects while managing the flow of funding into the community. Our simple yet robust process helps avoid the cumbersome bureaucracies of large, complex institutions. And we’re proud of the exceptional rating on fiscal and contractual management of public and private funds that federal, state, and independent auditors have given us.
