Please save the date: Friday April 9, at 1 pm (this is the Friday of Crit week)
Rory Golden, Program Officer, External Affairs/Fiscal Sponsorship, for New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) will be giving a workshop on NYFA’s Fiscal Sponsorship Program, which is open to artists from all over the country.
Golden’s presentation will include information on two of NYFA’s main fundraising and support programs:
NYFA Source is the most extensive national online directory of awards, services, and programs for artists. Listings include over 4,200 arts organizations, 2900 award programs, 4,200 service programs, and 900 publications for individual artists across the country. More program listings are added every day.
<a href="http://www.nyfa.org/level2.asp?id=2&fid=10 Fiscal Sponsorship is a critical way for individual artists, artists’ collaborative projects, and emerging arts organizations in all disciplines to apply for funding usually available only to organizations with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. The right fiscal sponsor will not only allow you to manage your project efficiently, but can actually help artists to raise more money and realize their artistic visions more fully.
The workshop will be held at 1104 S Wabash, Room 203C.
I will be needing those interested to register in advance with me, as space is limited.
There is also a possibility for a one-on-one consultation with Rory, after the presentation, for which there is a small fee ($15.) Those interested would register on line. If you interested in this let me know so I can get that process organized. Information about Rory and this opportunity are in the attachment.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with Mimi Schaer, who is organizing this event.
