CLE Accredited Live Webinar (for attorneys only): Understanding and Negotiating Fiscal Sponsorship Arrangements

Wednesday, June 8, 2022, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

This CLE presentation provides a legal overview of fiscal sponsorship, which allows a non-tax-exempt organization to fundraise and operate under the umbrella of a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization which acts as the fiscal sponsor. Topics covered include fiscal sponsorship structuring options, the advantages and disadvantages of fiscal sponsorships (especially for small organizations), and common legal provisions in such arrangements.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to understand the purpose of and possible structures for fiscal sponsorship arrangements. With this understanding, participants will be able to counsel clients on the pros and cons of fiscal sponsorship arrangements; assess whether entering into a fiscal sponsorship, either as the fiscal sponsor or as the sponsored organization, is an appropriate pathway for clients; and negotiate fiscal sponsorship agreements on behalf of their clients.

Presenters: Raphael Stern, Staff Attorney and Elizabeth Wytock, Staff Attorney/Legal Fellow
