Donation Solicitation Letters and Content

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.
