About Fiscal Sponsorship

The Alliance for the Arts has launched a new and exciting model that will help to build an infrastructure that will serve creatives in Fort Myers and beyond. We are pleased to introduce our Fiscal Sponsorship Program.  Fiscal Sponsorship is an arrangement between an existing 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and an individual or entity lacking the legal status needed to receive grants from foundations, individual donors and government agencies.

The fiscal sponsor agrees to provide administrative services and oversight to, and assume limited legal and financial responsibility for, the activities of groups or individuals engaged in work that furthers the fiscal sponsor’s mission, in this case, to transform lives and improve our community through the arts. The Alliance has a long history of supporting a community of artists who embody diversity, innovation and uniqueness of vision.

The clearest, though not the only, benefit to participating in fiscal sponsorship is that individuals are able to access charitable funding for their project while forgoing the time consuming and expensive process of creating and running a 501(c)(3) organization themselves. This especially applies to independent artists or those interested in the arts, for whom setting up a nonprofit for a particular project is rarely necessary. For questions, email Molly@ArtInLee.org.
