What is Fiscal Sponsorship?
Fiscal sponsorship is a mutually beneficial relationship between a nonprofit organization and another organization or group that does not have its own nonprofit status. It allows the non-exempt group to receive funds and operate under the fiscal sponsorship organization's tax-exempt status, enabling them to access tax benefits and grants.
The Benefits of Fiscal Sponsorship
Fiscal sponsorship offers numerous advantages for sports organizations, such as:
- Access to tax-deductible donations: With fiscal sponsorship, donors can make tax-deductible contributions to your sports organization, increasing your fundraising potential.
- Grant opportunities: Many foundations and government agencies require organizations to have nonprofit status to be eligible for grants. Through fiscal sponsorship, you can apply for grants that would otherwise be unavailable to your group.
- Administrative support: The fiscal sponsor can provide administrative assistance, allowing you to focus on growing your sports organization and fulfilling your mission.
- Legal and financial oversight: As a fiscally sponsored organization, you can benefit from the fiscal sponsor's expertise in legal and financial matters, ensuring compliance with regulations and best practices.
- Credibility and reputation: Aligning with a well-established fiscal sponsor like Albuquerque Roller Derby enhances your organization's credibility and reputation within the sports community.
- Reduced administrative burden: By joining forces with a fiscal sponsor, you can streamline your operations, minimizing the administrative tasks associated with managing a separate nonprofit entity.
