Attached please find the application and legal agreement pertaining to becoming a fiscal agent of 12 oz of Hope, recognized as a 501(c)3 corporation by the Internal Revenue Service.
We are excited to learn more about the work you are hoping to do and how we, as fiscal sponsors, can help facilitate that work. Once accepted you will function with all the rights, privileges and responsibilities of a nonprofit corporation as a 12oz of Hope Family Group Member.
We understand that if you are just getting started or have been “winging it” for a while, making an application of this type can feel somewhat intimidating. It’s ok! All organizations had a start-up time, even ours. We can identify with the challenges you may be facing. The Application is actually designed to assist you as you try to put on paper what has been going on in your heart and mind.
We also recognize that the application is very dry and sounds very strict. We apologize for this, but the IRS insists that we use these procedures and protocols.
As you read through the agreement and work through the application, please feel free to email if you have any questions: Info@12ozofhope.org. We want to make this process as smooth as possible for you.
Bringing Hope 12oz at a time,
