12 Ways to Identify Responsible Fiscal Sponsorship

When evaluating a direct model fiscal sponsorship relationship, we encourage you to ask the following questions:

  1. Is the fiscal sponsor leadership familiar with NNFS fiscal sponsorship best practices? These practices reflect the highest operational standards for any organization operating in the public interest.
  2. Does the fiscal sponsor’s exempt purpose allow for the Project activities? Some Project activities may not qualify for fiscal sponsorship under a particular sponsor.
  3. Is there is a written agreement in place that includes detail on fiscal sponsor fees and charges?
