For accepted Emerging Organizations' NYFA Fiscal Sponsorship charges an 8% administrative fee, $100 contract fee, and a $100 annual renewal fee. Due to the more comprehensive accounting categories, EO's will also be responsible for a $45 quarterly maintenance fee.
Emerging organizations must be incorporated — or in the process of incorporating — as a nonprofit on the state level. Artist's Projects (APs) should complete an Artist's Project Application, if you are an AP you should leave this application and select the AP application category.
