Fiscal Sponsorship

As an arts organization we understand the risks and barriers to creative action. Slought is now offering fiscal sponsorship as part of our strategic commitment to supporting community efforts and growing solidarity networks.

If you are an independent artist or a small cultural organization, the lack of 501(c)(3) status can make it difficult to apply for grants and receive donations. If this is the case for you or your project, consider using us as your fiscal sponsor.

A fiscal sponsor is a 501(c)(3) organization that accepts funds on behalf of the sponsored program and then distributes them accordingly. It is a quick way to receive funds and gain access to administrative support. For organizations that are in the process of filing their nonprofit status or cannot obtain one in the short term, or for cultural workers, collectives and collaborative projects, this can be a effective way of receiving grants and getting your project off the ground.

We review requests on a rolling basis. Contact us by email to discuss your request.
