We have submitted our application to the Federal Government for federal 501(c)3 status, but the process can take several months for approval. By securing a Fiscal Agent, we can continue working towards our final goal of establishing affordable artists studios and begin our programs that will support our artists and community.
Because we are new and we are run entirely by a small group of dedicated volunteers, our Fiscal Agent is able to provide us with services that we are not staffed for. Their knowledge of fundraising will help guide us in a responsible direction and allow us to establish best practices. And by partnering with a trusted agent, we garner more respect and exposure from our community.
