Fiscal Sponsorship Guide

Fiscal Sponsorship

This is a free guide provided by NYLPI’s Pro Bono Clearinghouse on Fiscal Sponsorship. Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which an existing U.S. tax-exempt organization typically in the form of a public charity (the “Fiscal Sponsor”) enters into an agreement with an individual, group or organization seeking to raise tax-deductible funds to conduct a charitable project (the “Sponsored Project”) either prior to or without incorporating or obtaining recognition as a tax-exempt organization from the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”). This guide was put together by attorneys from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP and reflects legal updates as of January 2020.
