The Full Cost Project is a joint initiative of Philanthropy California and Nonprofit Finance Fund to support a funding model that honestly assesses the full cost for organizations to deliver on their missions and to be sustainable over time. We are bringing together education, advocacy, and skill-building with the goal to increase the number of funders that provide full cost funding and to build the skills and capacity of all those engaged in grantmaking – foundations, corporations, individuals, and government.
At this moment, many nonprofits are facing greater fiscal uncertainty than ever before. Government funding is precarious, with budgets and priorities changing daily.
Across the nation, numerous initiatives and programs are converging to create an increased focus on nonprofit overhead and funding the full cost of program delivery. As this conversation takes place nationally, we are engaging California funders in a dialogue that can shape better outcomes for the sector.

Immigration issues have attracted significant attention over the past few years as changes in federal policies have ignited debates across the political spectrum.
We believe it is possible to co-create a California in which our families, communities, markets, public and private institutions and political frameworks work in concert to advance the common good. The California we envision consistently and conscientiously seeks to move towards justice, fairness, and inclusiveness in all of our institutions and systems by embracing every person as their full self. Together we have set forth a set of goals that, if achieved, will radically transform our state.
