Financing and fundraising

Due to their business model based mainly on public funding, diversification of resources is a real challenge for SSE players.

Cornillier Avocats, which devotes a large part of its activity to assisting non-profit organisations, has detailed knowledge and expertise in financing and fundraising.

Many mechanisms exist: spinning off commercial activities, skills patronage, sponsorship, product sharing, collection of donations, solidarity-based savings, crowdfunding, financing by corporate foundations or foundations recognised as being in the public interest, creation of a structure dedicated to fundraising (endowment funds, foundations, etc.).

Cornillier Avocats provides tailor-made support in identifying the available financing solutions and their implementation methods.

Cornillier Avocats assists companies in their dealings with funders and secures the parties’ respective commitments.
