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.
Who should attend:
Organizations that are looking for a fiscal sponsor
Organizations that have been asked to be or have interest in being a fiscal sponsor
