This event is offered in partnership with Nonprofit New York.

Starting a new social venture can be overwhelming. Many folks tend to jump straight into the process of creating a new 501c3 nonprofit organization and overlook fiscal sponsorship as an option.

We will explain some different models of fiscal sponsorship, share how to find the right sponsor, what fiscal sponsors are looking for in a potential partner, and what the standard application process entails.
