Artists and organizations who receive funding from NALAC can decide to use a fiscal sponsor for the administration of funds.
What is a fiscal sponsor?
- Fiscal sponsors are non-profit organizations that provide fiduciary oversight, financial management and other administrative services for projects.
- This saves you – the artist or organization – a level of paperwork and taxes you have to pay, as fiscal sponsors are 501(c)3 – tax-exempt. However, fiscal sponsors usually take an administrative fee for the oversight of funds.
I want to learn more about fiscal sponsorship opportunities. Now what?
- Organizations like Fractured Atlas and Allied Media Projects provide fiscal sponsorship for individual artists and organizations. There’s also a variety of different fiscal sponsors based on state/location, discipline, theme, etc.

I have a fiscal sponsor. Now what?
- The W9 submitted should be for the fiscal sponsor – it should have an EIN number that will be used for grant processing and accounting.
- Grantees who decide to use a fiscal sponsor must provide a fiscal sponsorship agreement letter that states that the fiscal sponsor agrees to receive any funds on behalf of the grantee; distribute them to the grantee; and maintain appropriate financial records. This letter should be on the fiscal sponsorship’s letterhead.
