This draft focuses on "conduit PBOs" which provide funds to "associations of persons" which, in turn, must use such funds to carry on qualifying public benefit activities (PBAs). While the association of persons is not itself a PBO, the conduit PBO providing funds to it, must monitor how the funds are spent in order to ensure that the association of persons is using the funds for carrying on qualifying PBAs. The monitoring requirement imposed on the conduit PBO is a prerequisite for its continued approval as a PBO.
