Objective: Provide clarity and advise steering committee on MHC’s fiscal sponsor process by developing criteria and implementing a selection process that ensures MHC can achieve community impact and adequately resource partners.
The group identified potential barriers in finding potential sponsors and decided MHC should secure a Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement with another party instead of merging with another group.
It is understood that MHC needs to find new funders without competing with our partners.
A list of possible Tier 1, 2 and 3 groups were identified and people in the group were tasked to pre-interview potential funders and, if possible, add more possibilities to the list.
Next steps – At the May Steering Committee meeting present funder criteria and brainstorm with to narrow list of perspective funders and develop a proposal for fiscal sponsers.
