The Arts & Business Council acts as a fiscal agent for start-up and small arts groups that are seeking to raise funds through grants and donor support but are not yet incorporated as 501(c) 3 organizations. If incorporation is the right next step, we educate and aid organizations during that process as part of our mission to support cultural groups throughout their development. If you are currently seeking fiscal sponsorship, contact us to learn more or download our application for fiscal sponsorship.
