LEAD STORY: NNFS Dec. 8 virtual conference

A chance to meet with a wide-ranging mix of fiscal sponsor colleagues

The National Network of Fiscal Sponsors’ annual conference, held at key locations around the country since 2007, is an event many of us look forward to — a chance to share practical details of our work and enjoy the company of fellow sponsors. Last year, Covid-19 shut us out of that pleasure, too.

Fiscal sponsorship has mostly thrived during the pandemic, and December 8, NNFS will host a virtual meetup where we can reaffirm the importance and growth of our sector.

“This is a good way for us to connect while we’re still navigating Covid,” says Arun S. Prabhakaran, the network’s Steering Committee chairman and Urban Affairs Coalition executive vice president. “Our plans are to return to an in-person conference next year, but we’re also talking about adding several virtual meetings during the year.” MORE

The Fiscal Sponsor Directory thanks its supporters for their generosity. “It’s an honor on behalf of Nonstop Wellness and personally to provide support to San Francisco Study Center and its Fiscal Sponsor Directory. In an era of “fake news,”  targeted (and often abusive) political advertising and the deepening decay of polarized politics, Study Center stands apart — a throwback to the era when journalists were committed to the notion of a democratic society with true pillars of representation. Thank you for your team’s caring commitment and credible voice. It’s a privilege to support the Fiscal Sponsor Directory and the larger vision of your mission.” — David Sloves, CEO, Nonstop Wellness, Study Center’s Benefits Administrator
