New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) supports artists across disciplines by providing resources to help you develop creative projects, build organizations, and craft sustainable careers. We know that fundraising is critical to making your work and that some grants, like New York State Council on the Arts, are only available to nonprofit organizations and not individual artists.
NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship is a fundraising and administrative tool that allows your project or emerging organization to use NYFA’s 501c3 nonprofit status to fundraise for your own project. With this partnership with NYFA, you gain access to government, foundation, and corporate grants traditionally restricted to 501c3 organizations; incentive of a tax deduction to attract individual donors; consultation services with NYFA staff; fiduciary oversight and financial record-keeping; and a personalized profile page on nyfa.org.
NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship’s quarterly no-fee application deadlines are June 30, September 30, December 31, and March 31. We also accept Out-of-Cycle Review applications year-round.
