Fiscal Agent? Fiscal Sponsor? Advising on Fiscal Sponsorship Issues

Event Description


Deadline to Register:  Thursday, April 10, 2014 if you are attending by phone.

In person attendance can register in advance or at the door on April 14.  Don't forget your bag lunch! 

Fiscal sponsorship is an often maligned and frequently misused tool for funding charitable activities in conducted by non-§501(c)(3)s.  It does not exist in the Internal Revenue Code or Regulations.  The law in this area is drawn from court cases, revenue rulings, private letter rulings, and many lawyers’ creative thinking.  There are varying uses for fiscal sponsorship, as well as varying opinions on whether or not it even should be used.

Emily Robertson will provide a very quick overview and outline of fiscal sponsorship and then facilitate a discussion among program attendees regarding ways they are using fiscal sponsorship in their client base, concerns about the practice, and present questions to their colleagues.

This is the second topic of the Business Law Section’s Nonprofit Corporations Committee brown bag lunch series.  We will meet at the MSBA offices at noon on April 14th.  This is a brown-bag lunch.  Water and soft drinks will be provided.
