Fiscal Sponsorship

Fiscal sponsorship is beneficial for projects and organizations that are seeking funding but do not have tax exempt status.  A public charity with 501(c)(3) status (such as Arts Wisconsin) can act as a sponsor, allowing the project or organization to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under the sponsor’s formal tax exempt status.
