This PNY Members-Only program is a part of the Legal Series from our PNY Core:

Fiscal sponsorship has evolved as an effective and efficient mode of starting new nonprofits, seeding social movements, and delivering public services.  Fiscal sponsorship has become a popular, widespread and a reputable vehicle for a flexible and immediate response to a range of activities from arts to environmental activism to international aid.  Over the years, corporate, foundation and individual donors have partnered with fiscal sponsors to create and fund projects, develop new grantmaking programs and build funding collaboratives.  However, the dos and don’ts are often still unclear to the parties involved:  funders, fiscal sponsors and project directors.

Come hear from a panel of experts with a wide-ranging experience in assisting with fiscal sponsorships and learn how you can maximize your ability to support creative and important projects from nonexempt organizations.

  • What fiscal sponsorship encompasses
  • How to practice fiscal sponsorships legally
  • Best practices in fiscal sponsorships – compliance, record-keeping, decision-making
  • Transitioning projects or spinning off
