Are you a nonprofit who wants to partner with other nonprofits or individuals by accepting donations on their behalf? Or do you want to ask a nonprofit to accept donations to sponsor your community-good projects? Lawyers (and the IRS) call that a “fiscal sponsorship.”

This session will cover the legal and pragmatic basics of fiscal sponsorships; when it is good idea (given your values, brand alignment, program impact and engagement goals); and best practices for partnership. You will receive a basic template fiscal sponsorship agreement and may also sign up for discounted one-on-one review of an agreement for your organization with Commonplace Law.
