I have recently started a non profit that aids orphans in the Himalayas. Instead of applying for non profit status right off the bat, I have gotten a fiscal sponsor. I am curious if anyone here knows if the bank account needs to be in both of our names? I know that they are responsible for keeping track and ensuring that we use our donations in the way that we say that we will, I am just, of course, weary of being in a finiancal situation with someone I do not know. The sponsor is a small nonprofit.

Anything else I should know in regards to this? Thanks for any info you can provide, I know some mamas on this board must have majored in this in college!
Stacey

Thanks!

Springsun, see if you have a women's resource center in your town that can help you with that question. Also, maybe call around to other non profits to see if they may assist. Sorry I don't know the answer to that one.
