Spring into Fundraising with Fiscal Sponsorship: Applications Due March 31

“NYFA’s Fiscal Sponsorship model allows for evolution.” – fiscally sponsored artist Karen Marshall (Fellow in Photography ‘90)

Are you an artist or artist-run organization looking to bring your project to the next level? NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship provides artists and emerging organizations, whose projects benefit the public, with greater access to funding and enhances their fundraising capabilities. Here a few benefits of NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship:

  • The ability to fundraise under NYFA’s 501c3 status and thus offer donors the incentive of tax-deductible donations;
  • Access to large-scale funding opportunities from foundations or corporate funders that are usually restricted to 501c3 tax-exempt organizations;
  • Free personalized support from NYFA staff

The next quarterly, no-fee application deadline for NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship is March 31, 2017.

Before You Apply

A key component to a successful application is being able to demonstrate an understanding of the difference between fiscal sponsorship and a grant; in this interview, Sarah Corpron, NYFA’s Acting Director of Business Services, explains the distinction.

Once you’ve reviewed these Frequently Asked Questions, we hope you apply for NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship! As Fellow Karen Marshall reflected in a recent interview, acceptance into NYFA’s Fiscal Sponsorship program is a chance to establish a unique relationship with NYFA that’s right for your project, no matter the artistic discipline.
