Apply Now | Expand Your Fundraising Reach with NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship: Deadline June 30

We want our projects to succeed!

Summer might be for lazy sun-bathing and picnicking in the park. But, it’s also the perfect time to take your creative inspirations and make them a reality. With many fall grant deadlines just around the corner, get a head-start on brainstorming potential funding sources and consider whether fiscal sponsorship might open doors for you!

How NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship Can Help

Most large-scale grants, such as the MAP Fund and New York State Council on the Arts grants, are only awarded to organizations with 501c3 status. However, under the umbrella of NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship, projects are given the capability to tap into these kinds of funding, as well as opportunities from corporate funders that are also restricted to 501c3 organizations.

Fiscal sponsorship also helps secure and bring in more individual donors for your projects by providing donors with the incentive of a tax deduction.

Personalized support from NYFA staff is a further benefit of NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship. NYFA staff reviews grant proposal materials, conducts one-on-one meetings to strategize and optimize fundraising, and coaches for project sustainability and budget management. We want our projects to succeed!

Is NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship a Good Fit for Me?

NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship proudly supports a diverse array of artist projects and organizations from all creative disciplines and across the country. From documentary films that explore social issues, to artist exhibitions and music festivals, our Fiscally Sponsored projects and organizations provide an important value to the community.  

Each project should include a public benefit component. Additional requirements for NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship include having a project budget of at least $15,000 or more. Applicants must also have a US-based tax ID number.

During the application review, the panel considers whether the application demonstrates a clearly defined plan for project implementation and feasibility, and whether the project budget is accurate and realistic.
