Fiscal sponsorship can be a wonderful funding option for startup nonprofits and charitable projects. Many who launch their organization under fiscal sponsorship believe that once their organization reaches a certain size or level of maturity, that they must separate from their sponsor and become an independent 501(c)(3).

While that is sometimes the case, only a tiny fraction of sponsored projects go out on their own each year, and it’s not always the right choice.

Join us to better understand if and when separation might be the best option for your fiscally-sponsored project, what the separation looks like; how it could affect your fundraising, programs and operations; what other options you may have; and how to determine your best path forward.

This is an advanced live, online training intended for nonprofit professionals with experience managing a fiscally-sponsored project. If you're looking to separate your project from its sponsor to attain independent 501(c)3 status in the future, we invite you to join the training!

Upon completion of this live, online training, you should be able to:

  • Evaluate your options as a fiscally-sponsored project that’s considering separation and determine the best option for your organization
  • Discuss various fundraising considerations with your board and development team.
  • Examine your fiscally-sponsored project’s current operational, financial, and staffing situation to determine if and when might be the right time to separate from your sponsor
  • Make a well-reasoned case to an advisory board or funder regarding whether separation is the right decision for your organization and if so, when the right time might be to pursue a 501(c)(3)
