From : Communities>>Open Forum
CDFI Community, Ever wonder about the seemingly nebulous field of fiscal sponsorship; a term of art that encompasses several distinct legal constructs?  Do you have challenges underwriting fiscal sponsors or projects operating under the auspices of a fiscal sponsor?  Have you served as a fiscal sponsor? Or perhaps you see potential in creating a national CDFI fiscal sponsor of sorts to test innovative community finance models in a safe space that can then be adopted broadly by the CDFI community [More]
