Fiscal Sponsorship

What is a Fiscal Sponsorship and why would I want one?

As a movement artist or producer of events, you can now take advantage of the benefits a nonprofit organization enjoys, without the bother and expense of creating and maintaining one.

As a fiscal sponsee, you can apply for grants (i.e. Santa Cruz Arts Council)* and accept donations under The 418 Project’s 501(c)3 status. For a small additional fee, we can track your funds and send out your donor tax letters so you can relax and devote yourself to your passion, your art and your community.

Is your art or project is in alignment with The 418 Project’s mission?

The 418 Project promotes physical, emotional and spiritual well being through movement art and dance in a creative and collaborative environment. If your project is alignment, apply now! It just takes a few minutes. We will let you know if you are a good candidate for fiscal sponsorship.

How does it work?

When you’re a fiscal sponsee with us, you may receive donations and grant funds directly through our nonprofit number. Then we turn those around and you will receive your money within 14 days, less our sponsorship fees.
