Diversifying funding sources pays off. Fiscal sponsorship is a component of the Conseil’s General Funding Program for Arts Organizations, which is aimed at arts organizations that want to obtain funding for their artistic endeavours while helping the Conseil find funds. Once these organizations are accepted into the fiscal sponsorship program, they become representatives of the Conseil in its fundraising efforts. It is a good way for these organizations to solicit donations from foundations, companies, and individuals, and to become known to donors.

The Conseil provides donors with tax receipts. Because arts organizations must be eligible for assistance from the Conseil beforehand, and their eligibility for fiscal sponsorship is evaluated based on artistic excellence and good governance criteria, this sponsorship is considered an endorsement for stimulating contributions.

Soliciting the private sector can pose a major challenge for arts organizations. Feel free to refer to our arts and philanthropy consultation service.

Eligibility

Organizations must meet the following criteria:
• They must be not-for-profit.
