Fiscal Sponsorship (Artspire)

Artspire, created by ARTUAE, is one of the oldest and most reputable fiscal sponsorship programs in the country.

It gives individual artists and artist-run organizations increased access to greater funding and enhances their fundraising capabilities.
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 ARTUAE's fiscal sponsorship, artists and organizations can optimize the reach of their fundraising efforts.
