State SCF Partner

To launch the SCF in any particular state, the first requirement is for NCG to align with one or more non-profit organizations (501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4)) who will assemble and manage the state-wide consortium of other non-profit organizations. What form that consortium will take is up to those parties who organize it for their particular state. That consortium is identified above as the State SCF Partner (SP).

It will be up to each SP to determine what other types of tax-exempt non-profit organizations, under the 29 categories included under IRS code 501(c), that can be part of that particular consortium. Examples might be labor unions under 501(c)(5) or Chambers of Commerce under 501(c)(6). Each SP will also determine if they want to include in the consortium other organizations like local governments, school districts and other kinds of non-profit organizations.

The key objective is to assemble a sufficiently inclusive group so as to be able to identify all the major problems to be addressed by this SP, and to assemble the expertise to create task groups and other sub-groups who can formulate plans to address those problems and oversee the implementation of them.

This overall ecosystem should generate substantial financial resources that will be used by the SP to address the various problems identified by the consortium. To carry those plans out will require the legal infrastructure to provide the mechanism for implementation. That begins with the State Holding Company.
