Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which non-exempt charitable and creative projects can qualify for more funding opportunities, like grants and tax-deductible contributions, by using the 501c3 status of an organization with a related mission.

Explore the benefits and use of Fractured Atlas’s fiscal sponsorship program as a fundraising tool. The program will include:

  • an overview of fiscal sponsorship 
  • how to apply to Fractured Atlas's program
  • how to use the tools within the program  
  • an introduction to fundraising

This session will also cover crowdfunding, an online and social fundraising method where you ask a large number of people to donate money, often in small amounts and over a short period of time. Learn about the benefits and features of popular crowdfunding sites, like IndieGoGo, Kickstarter, and RocketHub, and how these resources can be used with fiscal sponsorship to raise funds for your creative project.
