we help you raise funds.
LET US SPONSOR YOUR PROJECT
New York Theatre Barn wants to help you raise money for your project. There is a community of philanthropic individuals, charitable foundations, and government institutions devoted to funding the arts. Unfortunately, many independent artists and small companies lack the 501(c)(3) tax status that makes them eligible to apply for grants and incentivizes individual gifts. Also, when an artist launches a nonprofit, it leaves little time for actually making the art. The day-to-day business of administering a tax-exempt organization takes so much time and energy. We believe that you need to be focused on your art, not filing paperwork.
FISCAL SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
With our fiscal sponsorship program, you can solicit tax-deductible donations and apply for grants without going through the process of launching a 501(c)(3).
Our program is open and accessible to artists and arts organizations nationwide focused on telling untold stories. Your project must have some public benefit and be non-commercial in nature. All Activities must be charitable in purpose. We support fiscally sponsored projects that are consistent with our IRS-approved charitable mission.
WHAT WILL FISCAL SPONSORSHIP DO FOR YOUR PROJECT?
Theatre Barn is legally registered as a charity to fundraise in all 50 states, and our fiscal sponsorship program offers fantastic benefits. We can process donations online or by check.
Fiscally sponsored projects are notified within 3-5 business days of receipt of funds, and funds will be available within a week after deposit upon request from artistit or organization.
There is a base 10% administrative fee on all donations, with no additional fees for processing credit cards or checks.
