New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) supports artists, filmmakers, musicians, performers, and creative entrepreneurs across disciplines. We know that fundraising is critical to making your work and sharing it with the world.

What is Fiscal Sponsorship?

Fiscal Sponsorship is a fundraising and administrative tool that allows your project to use NYFA’s 501c3 nonprofit status to fundraise for your own project. With the support of NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship, you can:

  • Apply for funding from government, foundation, and corporate grants traditionally restricted to 501c3 organizations.
  • Offer the incentive of a tax-deduction to attract individual donors.
  • Receive consultation services with NYFA staff at no cost.
  • Receive fiduciary oversight and financial record-keeping.
  • Create a personalized fundraising page on nyfa.org.

We are here for you.

NYFA’s staff is composed of arts administrators and makers with expertise in finance, fundraising, and project management. Our team is dedicated to providing individualized support to help you make your project or organization a success on your own terms.

We offer unlimited free consultations, with flexibility to meet in-person or remotely, on topics including:

  • Feedback on grant proposals
  • Fundraising strategies
  • Project management
  • Marketing materials
