Question about the criteria to join The Social Change Nest

Tracey Shipman

Posted on September 10, 2020

I am working with a group of individuals in Nosara, Costa Rica to initiate a collective that is focused on community gardens, educations for the community on growing their own food, and creating a regenerative system that is not dependent on tourism to provide basic human needs.  We are a group of local nationals and expatriates from a variety of countries (Costa Rica, Canada, US, Australia, France etc).
I am trying to determine some of the basic requirements to join a Fiscal Host.  Do we have to be in the same country to join and receive support provided (ie bank account, collecting funds, assistance with accounting and taxes)?

Any direction that you can provide would be most appreciated.
Kind regards,
Tracey Shipman

Hi Tracey,

Thank you very much for your message. I'm afraid that in order to be fiscally hosted by us you have to have a UK address. However, you can make donations to any country.

Sorry about that.

Best wishes,
