Bookkeeping & Fiscal Sponsorship Services

Arts Services Inc. (ASI) offers financial support services for organizations and artists.  The two types of services we offer include Bookkeeping and Fiscal Sponsorship.



  • Organize your financial records and assist with budgeting needs using Quickbooks (or another software or record keeping system).

  • Produce financial statements and reports for your Board of Directors or financial supporters.

  • Ideal for non-profits, for-profit businesses in the creative field, or artists and creative entrepreneurs.

  • We can provide financial support and bookkeeping services for a few hours a week, every other week, or monthly based on your needs.

  • Bookkeeping services are based on an hourly rate.


  • Fiscal sponsorship is a fundraising tool that enables an individual, group of individuals, or organizations to raise funds using the benefits of a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

  • Use ASI’s 501c3 status to be eligible for and apply for local, regional, and national funding grant opportunities.

  • Assistance with donation and ticket processing services for campaigns and events.

  • Artists can apply to NYS Council on the Arts annual grant application process (requires a fiscal sponsor).

  • Fiscal Sponsorship fees are based on a percentage.

“The SGAA would really like to grow and thrive in WNY. The organization has been surviving over the last 10 years at our previous home, but we see our move to Buffalo as the start of a new chapter for us. Using the services of ASI in the area of fiscal responsibility is another crucial first step in getting us on the right track and we’re immensely grateful that this service exists.” – Megan McElfresh, SGAA Executive Director
