About Fractured Atlas / Fiscal Sponsorship:

Fractured Atlas is a resource that empowers artists to succeed as entrepreneurs. It provides the business infrastructure and 501c3 status that makes it easier for artists to bring their projects to fruition. Fractured Atlas describes itself as an “artistic liberator”, because it handles some of the back-office functions that are necessary to run a business, freeing the artists to focus on bringing their creations to the world.

Fiscal Sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) public charity sponsors a project that lacks exempt status. This is an alternative to starting a nonprofit which allows SPAACESto seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under the sponsor’s exempt status. Fractured Atlas is the country’s largest arts fiscal sponsor. They work with thousands of artists and arts organizations to provide education and support for raising funds. Fractured Atlas empowers artists, arts organizations, and other cultural sector stakeholders by eliminating practical barriers to artistic expression, so as to foster a more agile and resilient cultural ecosystem.

SPAACES is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of SPAACES must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
