Guide to Fiscal Sponsorship
A detailed look at how individual grantseekers can affiliate with an organization to increase their chances for receiving funding.
Since most foundation funding is awarded to nonprofits rather than to individuals, affiliating yourself with an organization or obtaining a fiscal sponsor can increase your likelihood of receiving funding. Most such affiliations with fiscal sponsors are rather formal, based on a written contract that spells out who will do what, and some sponsors will extract a fee for this service. This course offers a detailed look at the affiliation possibilities for individual grantseekers.
Topics covered include:
- The benefits of affiliation
- Why many grants call for institutional affiliation
- How to navigate the affiliation continuum
