I was working for another organization and decided to become independent and start UAC. I had funding lined up and in order to keep the work going without delays, and to make the funders feel confident in continuing to fund us, I needed a fiscal sponsor. A brand new organization might have been seen as somewhat risky to funders. A colleague recommended TCI - they had a great track record and similar projects working under them.
