NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship
The Fiscal Sponsorship program at NYFA is a Fundraising and Administrative tool available for artists everywhere. Fiscal Sponsorship allows individual artists and organizations to gain access to funding from a broader range of donors.

  • Fiscal sponsorship allows individual artists and emerging arts organizations in all disciplines the ability to raise funds using NYFA’s tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3)-classified organization. Under NYFA’s fiscal sponsorship, artists and organizations can optimize the reach of their fundraising efforts.
  • NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship is one of the oldest and most reputable programs of its kind in the country. It gives individual artists and artist-run organizations increased access to greater funding and enhances their fundraising capabilities.
