Under My Umbrella: Fiscal Sponsorship in New York State

  • Posted Jan 28, 2014

Fractured Atlas released their report “Under My Umbrella: Fiscal Sponsorship in New York State”. The objective of the study was to better understand fiscal sponsorship’s relationship to and place within the arts ecosystem, using the most recent year available of CDP and Fractured Atlas fiscal sponsorship data. In response to the core research question—whether, controlling for other factors, fiscally sponsored status predicts specific relevant organizational characteristics such as earned income, total attendance, and fundraising efficiency— the researchers found that for the most part, fiscally sponsored status does not predict such characteristics.

This report was commissioned by the Arts & Culture Research Fund, administered by the New York Community Trust.
