It has often been said: “there has to be a better way”.
Shared platforms may be one such way.
The term shared platform is commonly used to describe a situation where an organization adopts and provides a legal home for a project or initiative that is unincorporated and does not have its own legal status. It offers an alternative to incorporating or obtaining charitable registration in the nonprofit sector and, perhaps more importantly, it offers efficient sharing of capacity and nurturing of emerging leadership.
