In Silicon Valley the arts ecosystem is entrepreneurial and open to new business models. Fiscal sponsorship provides artists, arts collectives, and small organizations a way to keep operations lean and administrative burdens minimal while still effectively meeting financial, legal, and fundraising needs. A range of services and relationships with potential fiscal sponsors is available.

This workshop on fiscal sponsorship presented in partnership with the City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs will feature a panel of experts discussing what fiscal sponsorships are, why to consider using one, and how to choose a fiscal sponsor, as well as the nature of fiscal sponsors, fiscal agents, and providers. The panel will be moderated by Frances Phillips, program director of arts and the Creative Work Fund at the Walter and Elise Haas Fund. Panelists will include: Tamara Alvarado, executive director of the School of Arts & Culture at Mexican Heritage Plaza, and Michelle Lynch Reynolds, program director of Dancers’ Group.

Attendance is free, but advance registration is required.
