Question of the Week

February 20-27, 2024

I contacted legal for guidance and got scolded for starting out with 20X the $50,000 limit I swore I wouldn’t exceed when I filed the 1023-EZ.  I don't even have a bank account, nor am I guaranteed a million dollar grant.

February Webinar Sale - 50% Off

special_offer_tag.jpgFiscal Sponsorship: For the Funders, Sponsors and the Sponsored

Fiscal sponsorship is a time-honored method to spawn new charitable activity when the people with the vision and the energy to do the work do not have recognition of federal tax-exempt status.

It can function smoothly as an incubator of important new projects. Or it can function badly as a serious trap for the unwary.

This webinar will define fiscal sponsorship and discuss the most common types of sponsorship arrangements.  It will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type and the special considerations for funders, sponsors, and the sponsored.  It will review specific critical provisions of sponsorship agreements, particularly termination and exit issues.

Price: $44.50

That's 50% off its regular price of $89.

Offer expires February 29th. New subscribers can also start a FREE three-month trial subscription (an additional $17.95 value).
