On October 20, 2022, Borealis Philanthropy hosted a grantee partner learning session, How to Maximize Finance and Fundraising Support from Your Fiscal Sponsor, focused on what grantees need to know to build a successful relationship with their organization’s fiscal sponsor.

Our speakers included Nefertiti Long, President of the Alliance of Black Women Accountants, Chandra Anderson, President of Anderson Consults, and Wes Ware, a strategist with 20 years of experience in abolitionist organizing and movement building work.
