Led by fiscal sponsor veteran practitioners Josh Sattely and Thaddeus Squire from Social Impact Commons, the nation’s first and only nonprofit capacity builder focused on building healthy equitable fiscal sponsor practices, attendees will first be provided with an overview of fiscal sponsorship. This part will cover the mechanics of the two predominant types of fiscal sponsorship (comprehensive/Model A and pre-approved grant/Model C) and speak to the legal, structural, and compliance considerations along with some pros and cons of each model. From there we will explore the economic and equity cases for more comprehensive fiscal sponsorship, share field trends and diverse patterns of practice and lead a discussion on how attendees can strategically position themselves to be a part of a future nonprofit sector grounded in equity, abundance thinking, and resource sharing. This session is informed by the recent in depth national scan Social Impact Commons conducted on the field of fiscal sponsorship.
