We Support Legal Innovation and Transformation

Do you have a project that aims to innovate or transform law?

Renaissance Lawyer Society is a registered nonprofit and might be able to accept tax-deductible donations for your project, as a Fiscal Sponsor.

"Pre-Approved Grant" Fiscal Sponsorship

We provide “Pre-Approved Grant” (also known as “Model C”) fiscal sponsorships to projects that align with our mission of “supporting legal innovation and transformation.”

The project remains under your control and you are responsible for all project accounting. We collect funds on your behalf and distribute them to you, less our fiscal sponsorship fee.

If your project aligns with our mission, we invite you to explore our project terms:

  1.  U.S.-based project and U.S. funds only
  2. Preference for projects with specific, limited timeframe of 1 year or less
  3. Any direct expenses RLS incurs are charged to your project
  4. RLS fee of 6-10%, depending on project scope

Sponsorship Benefits

  1. RLS will accept grant awards and specified charitable donations in support of your project
  2. Many grants require non-profit to receive the funds
  3. Tax exempt status may allow organization to book space/services for free or tax exempt
