SWOP Universe

SWOP believes sustainability can only exist with grassroots leaders who will inevitability sustain much more than SWOP. SWOP’s work to sustain itself helps to build the economic power of our members, allies, and partners.

Fiscal Sponsorship

SWOP is a tax-exempt non-profit under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. As such, donations to projects of SWOP are fully tax-deductible on the donor’s federal income tax. For an Administrative Fee of 7%, SWOP offers fiscal sponsorship for grassroots community groups who agree with our Vision and Mission Statements but do not have their own 501(c)(3) status, thus making donations to those projects tax-deductible to the donor as well.

We offer fiscal sponsorship services as a service to the progressive movement so that it might grow and gain more influence. We do not fiscally sponsor groups that participate in election campaigns or which endorse or oppose candidates for elected office. A limited amount of lobbying is permitted under section 501(c)(3). If your organization lobbies, we will need to coordinate so that we don’t go over the IRS lobbying limits.

SERVICES INCLUDED:

  • Completion of all federal tax forms

  • Send IRS receipts for donations of $250 or more

  • Receive foundation grants

  • Process donation checks and crowdfunding donations

  • Collection of credit card donations on an individualized secure donate page

  • Regular financial activity reports

Tribal Entities Connect (TEC) mission is to reconnect Indigenous led organizations through communication, collaboration, and forming solidarity. Our vision is to create a network that supports the social wellbeing and sustainable livelihoods for Indigenous Peoples in the southwest. We began discussing the needs and lack of accessibility that Indigenous folks have to the available resources within the region. We recognize and wish to support resources already available for Indigenous Peoples, and want to further enhance our connections to them for Indigenous Peoples everywhere.

HNLT_logo_FinalFull_edited_edited.webp

The Honor Native Land Tax (HNLT) is a project of Albuquerque Showing up for Racial Justice (ABQ SURJ). The Honor Native Land Tax fundraises money in order to provide ongoing, no-strings-attached financial support to Indigenous organizations on Tiwa Land (also known as “Albuquerque”). Specifically, HNLT is investing in Pueblo Action Alliance and The Red Nation. By redistributing resources from settlers (those who benefit from settler colonialism) to Indigenous people (those who are harmed by settler colonialism), the HNLT offers a chance for settlers to make an ongoing contribution to Indigenous movements for land, water, and futures. This is a cross-class project that allows people to contribute financially on a sliding scale basis.  In doing so, settlers are able to move towards a right relationship with Indigenous peoples.
