THE OPPORTUNITY ARTS/PENTACLE PARTNERSHIP
WILL PROVIDE FISCAL SPONSORSHIP TO MICHIGAN ARTISTS
(Lansing, MI) – Lansing based Opportunity Arts & New York City based Pentacle are excited to announce a new business partnership between the two organizations that will provide fiscal sponsorship opportunities to Michigan based artists. The partnership will offer Opportunity Arts Affiliate Artists automatic membership to Unique projects, Pentacle’s most basic fiscal sponsorship program.
Unique projects is a fiscal sponsorship program which gives artists the ability to receive tax deductible donations, eligibility to apply for and receive foundation grants, as well as other nonprofit benefits, such as discounted rehearsal space. Artists work with a dedicated Pentacle administrator to clearly, reliably, and efficiently process their donations and send acknowledgments on their behalf. This is ideal for emerging or established artists with project-specific fundraising needs. “Fiscal Sponsorship is a great way for artistic professionals to generate additional funding for their artistic endeavors,” said Mike Marriott, owner of Opportunity Arts. “I am so pleased that we have the opportunity to partner with such an experienced & successful organization like Pentacle to provide fiscal sponsorship opportunities to artists in Michigan.”
The partnership will also give Opportunity Arts Affiliate Artists the opportunity to join Pentacle’s Unique plus, a fiscal sponsorship AND bookkeeping service at a discounted rate of $500 off the annual fee.
Unique Plus has all the benefits of Unique projects, plus a bookkeeping component which includes monthly fiscal reports, 1099 tax form prep and mailing, and access to a fiscal associate.
