Webinars for Wise Nonprofits: Negotiating and Understanding Fiscal Sponsorship Agreements

Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - Online Webinar

This webinar provides an 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 issues 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 assess whether entering into a fiscal sponsorship - either as the fiscal sponsor or as the sponsored organization - is right for the organization.

For those interested in structuring a fiscal sponsorship, whether as the sponsor or sponsored organization.

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