What’s a signatory?
The signatory is an individual who is able to sign contracts on behalf of a legal entity. For example, the authorized signatory could be you if the legal entity on file is your name and social security number, it could also be your collaborator if the legal entity on file is an LLC owned by them, or it could be your organization's board member if the legal entity on file is a corporation. Unsure who your signatory is, ask yourself "Who is authorized to sign a contract on behalf of the legal entity I've listed here?"
If you're not the member applying for fiscal sponsorship with Fractured Atlas but agreed to be the associated legal entity of the project, you will need to sign the fiscal sponsorship agreement to confirm your acceptance of any tax or liability implications related to fundraising through Fractured Atlas.
Once the direct applicant has assigned you as the signatory, you will receive an email from Fractured Atlas asking you to sign the fiscal sponsorship agreement.
