We have two humble goals for each session:

  1. To facilitate connections among those who practice this wacky thing called fiscal sponsorship
  2. To provide our attendees with useful information to help them personally, their practice and/or their organization

Each session is focused on a specific topic and features some combination of large group discussion, small group breakouts and/or expert guest speakers. (See below for a list of recent topics we’ve covered.) These sessions are free and open to all practitioners of fiscal sponsorship no matter who you serve, how you serve them or where you serve them! If this feels like the group for you, please register and bring your thoughts, plans, questions and answers related to how your organization manages any/all aspects of its operations through this time of uncertainty. Your hosts/moderators are:

  • Oliver Hack, Director of Fiscal Sponsorship, Social Good Fund
  • Andrew Schulman, Principal, Schulman Consulting
