About Fractured Atlas
Fractured Atlas helps raise funds for creative projects
Fractured Atlas wants to help raise money for artistic work. As the country’s largest arts fiscal sponsor, they provide accessibility, efficiency and affordability. They work with thousands of artists and arts organizations to provide education and support for raising funds.
There is a passionate community of philanthropic individuals, charitable foundations, and government institutions devoted to funding the arts. The catch is that many independent artists and small companies lack the 501(c)(3) tax status that makes them eligible to apply for grants and incentivizes individual gifts. What’s more, when an artist launches a nonprofit, there’s little time for making art. The day-to-day business of administering a tax-exempt organization leaves scant room for anything else.
Fractured Atlas wants artists to spend time making art, not filing paperwork. With fiscal sponsorship, projects can solicit tax-deductible donations and apply for grants without going through the onerous process of launching a 501(c)(3). The sponsored "project" might be a one-time collaboration or an independent artist or even an arts organization that does not have its own 501(c)(3) status.
Fractured Atlas is open and accessible to artists and arts organizations nationwide and in every artistic discipline. They won't judge the artistic quality or merit of their work. Fractured Atlas' job is to give artists the tools they need to raise the money to make it happen.
Three Rivers Dance is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Three Rivers Dance must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
