Unique projects
Unique projects is a basic sponsorship program which gives artists the ability to receive tax deductible donations and eligibility to apply and receive foundation grants. Artists work with a dedicated administrator to clearly, reliably, and efficiently process their donations and send acknowledgments on their behalf. This service is ideal for emerging or established artists with project-specific fundraising needs. An administrative fiscal sponsorship fee will be applied to all incoming donations/grants received by Unique projects on the artists' behalf - 5.5% fee for unincorporated artists and 7.5% fee for incorporated artists

Unique plus
Unique plus is a fiscal sponsorship and bookkeeping service. This program is ideal for individual artists, or organizations who are looking to build their business structure and financial foundation, as well as receive tax deductible donations and eligibility to apply and receive grants. Participating artists work one-on-one with a designated Pentacle administrator who will record all of the financial transactions for their project. An administrative fiscal sponsorship fee of  3% will be applied to incoming donations/grants that are received through Unique Plus on the artists’ behalf. Bookkeeping fees are based on income, starting at $1000/year.
