In general, auctions can be a great way to raise some additional funds for your fiscally-sponsored projects. Fractured Atlas is unable to accept income from online auction sites and fiscally-sponsored projects are prohibited from using these sites if they require that a 501(c)(3) receive the income. These sites include:
- eBay for Charity
- Double the Donation
- and more
Fractured Atlas is unable to accept funds from a third-party auction site because it is considered earned income, wherein there is an exchange of goods or services for funds. Fractured Atlas can only process contributed revenue for our fiscally-sponsored projects. Visit "Earned vs. Contributed Revenue" to learn more about the difference between earned and contributed income.
