What does it mean that The Social Change Nest is our Collective’s Fiscal Host?

A Fiscal Host is a legally constituted organisation that enables a Collective to transact financially without needing to legally incorporate themselves.
You can find out more about fiscal hosting here.

Do we have to use The Social Change Nest as a Fiscal Host?

No. There are other Fiscal Hosts such as All for Climate and Extinction Rebellion. It can be a good idea to have a Fiscal Host that is in the same country that you operate in.
