This is our presentation at the 9th World Conference on Ecological Restoration.

What is fiscal sponsorship?

Fiscal sponsorship is a taxation structure which allows small nonprofit organizations to provide the tax benefits of established registered charity organizations to their donors without obtaining 501(c)(3) status themselves. This allows organizations like the Refugio Tinti to focus fully on their activities on the ground by outsourcing the administrative overhead to their fiscal sponsor. In this way, we can ensure that 95% of your donation are actually used for the purpose you choose while we are still able to ensure that it is tax deductible as allowed by law. You can read more on this model in the overview of the US National Council of Nonprofits here.

The Refugio Tinti is fiscally sponsored as a project of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Empowerment WORKS. Empowerment WORKS has supported nonprofits on the ground for over two decades in their “relentless pursuit of a sustainable, just future for all.” If you have any questions about this approach, do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
