sorry, toya. didn't mean to be vague.
i wasn't exactly sure what you were meaning, but the general sentiment i
recognized was whether or not the 5% is a donation and whether or not
it's taken from the grant request. the 5% is not a "cut" but is written
on top of the grant request (so, if a grant request is being proposed at
$100, then it's written for $105, if that 5% is what has been agreed to
prior to the writing of the grant by all parties involved), and this 5%
extra is donated back to the uc-imc for their assistance. if we can't
write the 5% (or whatever is agreed to, it's UP TO 5%) on top of the
requested amount, then we work with the folks who are requesting the
grant to find a reasonable solution (including us not including any
percentage, if necessary). as far as i know, we don't bill anyone for
the service of fiscal sponsorship. the 5% then goes to cover the admin
costs of any fees the uc-imc occured for writing the grant, and for doing
the paperwork (including the proposal, the final reports, and any other
forms necessary), and for a pool in case we need legal assistance due to
a project we've fiscally sponsored.
there is a lot of work involved with fiscally sponsoring something. i
think it's fairly reasonable to request some contribution to acknowledge
that. however, we are definitely reasonable, and have foregone the
percentage if that meant saving the grant proposal.
hope this helps. if not, i'll keep explaining, if necessary.
