As a fiscal sponsor, in addition to receiving contributions, administrative organizing, and tax filing, ASP hopes to collaborate and share resources together. ASP's priority is to uplift community-based education about death care. We'd love to create together to share teach-ins, workshops, and/or table at your event(s).
A Fiscal Sponsor is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service that acts as a guardian of grants and donations for a Project that does not have 501(c)(3) designation. A Fiscal Sponsor is necessary for one good reason: funders are often more likely to make donations to anyone with 501(c)(3) status than those without. Some foundations, and sometimes governments cannot give grants to projects without a 501(c)(3). Also, some individuals often prefer to give to 501(c)(3) organizations so they can deduct the charitable donation on their tax return.

Planning for a compassionate death that reflects one’s priorities, values, and beliefs is important. Choices are also important–and available. VSED NW aims to share information about VSED so that individuals who might not qualify for medical support in death so they can make informed choices and plans. ASP had the opportunity to work closely with and fiscally sponsor VSED NW during their founding years in 2019-2022.
