The Ohio State Beekeepers Association, Inc. can act as a fiscal sponsor* for those groups not recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 nonprofit organization. You will need to contact the OSBA Treasurer for a fiscal sponsor letter from OSBA before submitting your grant application.
For all OSBA Affiliates, you will need a letter verifying your nonprofit affiliation with OSBA for this grant application as well. The OSBA Treasurer can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
*OSBA will not write the grant application for any of its affiliates, or for any group utilizing OSBA as a fiscal sponsor. OSBA may provide review of grant applications prior to submission for OSBA affiliates and any group utilizing OSBA as their fiscal sponsor. A fiscal sponsor is a nonprofit organization that provides fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services to help build the capacity of charitable projects. https://www.councilofnonprofits.org/tools-resources/fiscal-sponsorship-nonprofits
