Hit the ground running this new year with NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship. The next no-fee deadline to apply is December 31, 2018.

The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) strives to support artists of all disciplines with the resources to develop creative projects and organizations that inspire the world. We understand that fundraising is critical to making your work, and provide fiscal sponsorship on a project or organizational basis to help you open new doors to funding!

How NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship Works

NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship is a fundraising and administrative tool that allows your project to utilize NYFA’s 501c3 status. Once under the umbrella of NYFA, you gain:

  • Access to government, foundation, and corporate grants traditionally restricted to 501c3 organizations
  • Incentive of a tax deduction to attract individual donors
  • Free consultation services with NYFA’s expert staff

If you are a nonprofit and want to grow your mission but do not yet have the time to manage the administrative responsibility of a 501c3, NYFA also provides a substantial level of fiduciary oversight and record-keeping for all your financial activities.

NYFA is Equipped with Dedicated, Experienced Staff

NYFA is dedicated to connecting one-on-one and providing individualized support to our sponsored artists and organizations. Our staff is made up of artists, filmmakers, and administrators with expertise in finance, fundraising, marketing, and project management, all of whom are committed to helping you make your project or organization a success on your terms. We offer unlimited free consultations, with flexibility to meet in-person or remotely, on topics including:

  • Grant research and proposals
  • Fundraising strategies
  • Project management
  • Board development
  • Marketing materials
