New York Foundation for the Art (NYFA)’s Fiscal Sponsorship program is one of the oldest and most reputable programs of its kind in the country. Find out more about the program and how it can potentially help you to further your fundraising efforts, below.

What is Fiscal Sponsorship?

Fiscal sponsorship is a financial and administrative tool to help artists and arts organizations increase their ability to fundraise for their own project activities. It is not a funding program.

How does Fiscal Sponsorship expand fundraising?

Fiscal sponsorship expands access to large-scale funding opportunities from foundations or corporate funders, which are usually restricted to 501c3 tax-exempt organizations. Fiscal sponsorship also allows artist projects and organizations to solicit tax-deductible donations on behalf of their project activities.

Supporting your work.

In addition to these financial and administrative services, NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship boasts robust consultation services as essential part of the program. Staff meets one-on-one with Sponsored Projects and Organizations to discuss fundraising strategy, project management, grant research, and review marketing materials and grant proposals. We also offer no-fee grant submissions on behalf of your project.
