The 2 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).

  • 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.

“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

“As an artist, running my own business and wearing many hats, the support I receive from ASI as one of their fiscal sponsored projects is phenomenal. It saves me time and allows me to be able to focus more on the creative side of things. Plus the staff are the best! Very resourceful and supportive.”

–  Tina Dillman, Director, The Cass Project
