The Hack Foundation (EIN: 81-2908499) was founded in 2016 to serve as the legal entity for Hack Club, a nonprofit network of high schoolers creating the coding education they wish they could have.
In 2018, The Hack Foundation expanded to act as a nonprofit fiscal sponsor for Hack Clubs, hackathons, community organizations, and other for-good projects.
Today, hundreds of diverse groups ranging from a small town newspaper in Vermont to the largest high-school hackathon in Pennsylvania are fiscally sponsored by The Hack Foundation. Partnered organizations receive the benefits of 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, administrative and backoffice support, financial oversight, and transparency tools.

The Hack Foundation and all its software have been built over the years by teenagers at Hack Club. Today's supporters include Elon Musk, Vitalik Buterin, Google.org, among many others and hundreds of individual supporters.
As it grows, the Hack Foundation is exploring ways in which it can be responsible, as part of this we have recently made our entire finances 100% transparent.
