The Nonprofit Organizations Committee is pleased to announce our upcoming presentation:

Fiscal Sponsorship – Some Tricky Issues
August 19, 2021 at 10:00 a.m.

Please join the Nonprofit Organizations Committee for a program on the topic fiscal sponsorship, presented by Erin Bradrick.  Done properly, fiscal sponsorship can be an effective and powerful tool for furthering charitable impact and incubating mission-driven projects. However, fiscal sponsorship isn’t as simple as it first seems and often raises complex relational and legal issues. As attorneys to fiscal sponsor organizations and fiscally sponsored projects, it’s important to have a clear understanding of the basics of fiscal sponsorship relationships, as well as the more nuanced legal considerations that can arise. In this session, we’ll do a brief overview of the basics and then turn to some of the trickier issues that can come up in the fiscal sponsorship context. We’ll talk through issues such as the lobbying rules, fiscal sponsorship in the arts space, when a project might fall within the DAF rules, key provisions in fiscal sponsorship agreements, and exiting projects, among others.

Erin Bradrick is a Principal at NEO Law Group, where she provides corporate, governance, and tax counsel solely to nonprofits. Erin writes extensively and frequently speaks to various audiences on legal issues impacting the nonprofit sector.
