Starting a Nonprofit Through Fiscal Sponsorship

SPOKES LogoDo you have a new program you want to launch and pilot before investing time and resources into a formal nonprofit incorporation? Do you need to secure donations or grants for a community project, but don’t want to jump through the hoops of becoming a 501(c) (3)? Are you a for-profit corporation that wants to start a charitable program?

Fiscal sponsorship is an IRS-accepted way of accepting tax-deductible donations for your organization or project via an already-established 501(c) (3) organization.

Stacey Hunt, CEO of Ecologistics and Michael Jencks, Esq., former Board Chair of Ecologistics will present Starting a Nonprofit Through Fiscal Sponsorship on Wednesday, March 23 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at SPOKES in San Luis Obispo. Ecologistics currently fiscally sponsors nine organizations in a variety of ways. Ms. Hunt and Mr. Jencks will answer your questions regarding this simple and effective way to get your charitable work launched.
