Fiscal sponsorship is a legal and financial arrangement which allows a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit corporation, such as the Flickers Arts Collaborative (Flickers) the producers of the Rhode Island International Film Festival to provide it's nonprofit status and limited financial oversight to a project by an individual or organization that does not have nonprofit status. Flickers can provide this service to a variety of projects if they meet the fiscal sponsorship admissions criteria and their project is in line with our mission statement. This arrangement is a well-accepted model of nonprofit arts funding for individuals and organizations that do not have legal nonprofit status, but would like to take advantage of funding offered to 501(c)(3) organizations.
