BBA Webinar: Fiscal Sponsorship: A Dynamic Tool for a Rapidly Evolving Nonprofit

November 10, 2022 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm | Zoom

The nonprofit sector is impactful especially in Massachusetts, yet extremely fragmented and fragile.  Small organizations lack the resources to maintain their own back offices to manage risk, ensure compliance, report to funders and the government and, most importantly, support the people delivering on programs and mission. By developing and sharing nonprofit infrastructure and assuming fiduciary responsibility, fiscal sponsorship can address these problems. This 90-minute program will cover the legal fundamentals of the different models of fiscal sponsorship, industry trends, dos and don’ts, and offer pointers when advising clients considering these types of relationships.  Josh Sattely, Co-founder and Chief Legal Steward of Social Impact Commons, will lead the presentation and conversation.  Social Impact Commons works with nonprofits, funders, and service providers nationwide to help build healthier fiscal sponsorship practices.  Josh was previously Legal Counsel at Third Sector New England.
