More About Fiscal Sponsorship
Unique projects: Unique projects is a basic sponsorship program which gives artists the ability to receive tax deductible donations and eligibility to apply and receive foundation grants. Artists work with a dedicated administrator to clearly, reliably, and efficiently process their donations and send acknowledgments on their behalf. This service is ideal for emerging or established artists with project-specific fundraising needs. An administrative fiscal sponsorship fee will be applied to all incoming donations/grants received by Unique Projects on the artists' behalf - 5.5% fee for unincorporated artists and 7.5% fee for incorporated artists.
