Fiscal Sponsorship

This unique program offers individual artists, collectives, and emerging organizations the ability to solicit tax­ deductible contributions and grants, as well as consultation from MAPS staff for individual projects. Once a year, MAPS accepts applications for fiscally sponsored projects and an independent, three-person committee selects awardees. All project funds raised by fiscally sponsored projects are subject to a 6% administrative fee.
