What is Fiscal Sponsorship?

Fiscal sponsorship is a tool for expanding fundraising capabilities for projects with a public benefit component. As an arts fiscal sponsor, NYFA’s program allows individual artists, artist collectives, and emerging organizations to utilize NYFA’s 501c3 tax status to further the fundraising efforts of their own projects. Fiscally Sponsored Projects and organizations also gain access to experienced staff for fundraising and project management consultations, as well as review of letters of inquiry and grant proposals, amongst other benefits.  

Why Apply for an Out-of-Cycle Review?

NYFA’s Out-of-Cycle application process allows artists to meet time-sensitive deadlines, as some grants require a fiscal sponsor at the time of submission. There is a $175 administrative fee for an Out-of-Cycle Review and applicants typically hear back from the panel in two weeks time. Email [email protected] to request an Out-of-Cycle application. Depending on your grant application timeline, NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship’s no-fee quarterly application deadlines may also meet your project needs!
