City Lore Fiscal Sponsorships
City Lore serves as a fiscal sponsor for projects in keeping with our mission to foster New York City – and America’s – living cultural heritage. Since the early 1990s, we have served as fiscal sponsor for filmmakers such as Ric Burns (Coney Island, New York, Oliver Sacks: His Own Life); Michael Kantor (Superheroes: a Never-Ending Battle); and Steve Ives (Amato: a Love Affair with Opera). We have also served as sponsor for Jim Power (“Mosaic Man”), the band, Los Pleneros de la 21, and the educational organization, Local Learning.
City Lore generally takes an administrative fee of 5%, although we take a higher percentage if we are providing services in addition to fiscal sponsorship.
