Donation Solicitation Letters and Content

Last modified: February 10, 2024
You are here:

While we encourage each of our partner projects to solicit and raise donor support, it is critical that you accurately represent your project’s relationship with us.  As a sponsored project under our Model C arrangement, certain words and phrases should NOT be used to describe your position under Compass Charitable Partners, as they have legal meanings beyond what you would intend in any communication:

  • fiscal agent
  • fiscal agency
  • pass-through
  • conduit
  • umbrella
  • laundering
  • earmark
  • intermediary
  • partner (yes, we know…)

About that last one, we may consider you a “partner”, but that’s not OK language for you to communicate to your project’s potential donors.
