Conservancy is generally more actively engaged with the projects than SPI. Also, Conservancy projects become legally part of the Conservancy, which offers some liability protection for project leaders. Those are two major differences; there are probably many small differences as well.
I think it's important for our community to have a selection of fiscal sponsoring organizations, so that projects can pick one that fits right for their project culturally.
