Fiscal Sponsorship Opportunities Opportunity Arts has partnered with New York based non-profit Pentacle to provide opportunities for our Affiliate Members to receive fiscal sponsorship. Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) provides sponsorship to artists & arts projects that may lack exempt status. This alternative to starting your own non-profit allows artists to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under their sponsor's exempt status.
As an Opportunity Arts Affiliate Member, you will have the option to "opt in" to Pentacle's basic sponsorship program, Unique Projects at no extra fee. Opportunity Arts is also proud to provide the opportunity to "opt in" to Pentacle's Unique Plus, which includes fiscal sponsorship AND bookkeeping services at a discounted rate of $500 off the annual fee!
All services provided by Pentacle are scheduled & managed by the Unique Projects Administrator and ultimate approved acceptance into Unique Projects and/or Unique Plus will be at the sole discretion of Pentacle.
