terms and conditions

Fiscal Sponsorship is a fundraising tool that provides an alternative to, or prior to an organization establishing its own 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation in order to access funding for non-commercial projects from various grant-making organizations or individuals.  The funding, when received, is given to this nonprofit, tax-exempt umbrella organization. This organization, acting as the recipient’s fiscal sponsor, administers and accounts for funding on behalf of the recipient organization.

The fiscal sponsor is legally responsible for the funds received on behalf of sponsored projects. It must insure that the funds are used for the activities/work agreed upon by the donor and the recipient, and that the donor reporting requirements are met in a timely fashion.
