Get Ready for Grants: Fiscal Sponsorship Applications Due December 31

Ring in the new year by submitting your application to NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship!

Fiscal Sponsorship Expands Fundraising Capabilities  
Fiscal Sponsorship allows artists and organizations to apply for grants from foundations or corporate funders that are usually restricted to 501(c )(3) tax-exempt organizations. Sponsorship also offers individual donors the benefit of a tax-deductible contribution.

A Helping Hand
NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship supports projects by offering hands-on support through one-on-one consultations, feedback on fundraising plans, review of marketing materials, assisting in grant submissions and reporting, and acknowledging donations.  

In the past fiscal year, our projects received grants from prestigious funders such as the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, National Endowment for the Humanities and the New York State Council on the Arts. Millions of dollars went directly to funding artists and their projects. As one of the oldest and most reputable fiscal sponsors in the United States, our experience makes NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship one of the best options for artists seeking funding restricted to tax-exempt organizations.

NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship hosts exclusive workshops for our sponsored projects, creating connections within our wide-ranging network of artists, organizations and community partners. Participation in our fiscal sponsorship program also gives access to a spectrum of artist services and resources at NYFA.
