"A useful guide to the several different ways a nonprofit organization can legally provide financial backing for projects."--Ralph Warner, Publisher, Nolo Press. "Technical enough to be of use to attorneys, it is also accessible to the layman."--James A. Quisland, THE PRACTICAL PHILANTHROPIST. This book details how, through fiscal sponsorship, charitable projects can be undertaken without adding permanent organizations within the nonprofit community. Six project models that have already passed IRS scrutiny are described in detail, with annotated references to actual cases for those wishing to research further. Written by a leading attorney in nonprofit law, FISCAL SPONSORSHIP is "the definitive work in the field," according to CPA Morton Levy of the Clearinghouse for Volunteer Accounting Services. Published under grants from two San Francisco Foundations, FISCAL SPONSORSHIP is a major work with important implications, enthusiastically endorsed by John Edie, general counsel of the Council on Foundations.

This book is the answer to the future of sustainable non-profit business. I checked it out at my library and absorbed all of it's pages in no time. The information that I needed to read was for my particular situation consisted of only a few pages. It was all I needed to know. I didn't start the business as I had planned, but now it looks like I will start a different business entirely, yet the book still holds true. I am going to check it out again to refresh my memory for this new venture.
