Artist Sponsorship

The Sponsored Artist Program offered by Jump Arts enables performing artists and groups to receive contributions and grants to help make their artistic and career goals a reality.

The Jump Arts Sponsored Artist Program provides you with:

• a means to apply for most government, foundation, and corporate grants which require 501(c)(3) nonprofit status (even when these funders say “We do not fund individuals”);
• a means to receive matching gifts from corporations; and
• a means to receive charitable contributions of both money and goods from individuals and have those contributions be tax-deductible for the donor.

If you are interested in becoming a Sponsored Artist, the first step is to email Tom Abbs, Manager of the Sponsored Artist Program.
