Support The Project
Frequently Asked Questions
You are a fiscally sponsored project. What does that mean?
Fiscal sponsorship is the practice of non-profit organizations offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups—typically projects—engaged in activities related to the sponsoring organization's mission. Since The Moments Project is not a 501-C3 non-profit organization, we work with our fiscal sponsor, Fresh Arts, a non-profit organization that supports art projects, so donors who want to support us and prefer to do so through a non-profit organization can do so through them. To donate to the Moments Project through Fresh Arts, click here.
I want to make my donation tax deductible. How do I do it?
To ensure your donation is tax-deductible, you can donate through our fiscal sponsor, Fresh Arts, on behalf of our project. To donate to the Moments Project through Fresh Arts, click here.
This is a cool project, but I would like an idea of what a project might look like so I know what to expect.
Sure! The project is already in process. We are finishing up Phase 2 (Digital Photo Exhibit) and in the creative development process of Phase 3 (Dance Album). You can watch Phase 1 (Interference Dance Visual) by clicking here.
What is the difference between crowdfunding Indiegogo and supporting through Fresh Arts (fiscal sponsor) ?
Donations through crowdfunding campaigns are not tax-deductible, but depending on the campaign, you can receive some perks on that platform depending on how much you give. If you donate through Fresh Arts, your donation is tax-deductible, but donations are only fully deductible if the donor does not receive goods or services for their contribution. You would have to decide which way of support speaks to you.
Does my entire donation make it to you?
Not exactly. In exchange for using their platforms and handling donations, Crowdfuning platforms and non-profit fiscal sponsors (Fresh Arts) take out a percentage before your donation makes it to us. It can range from 3% in processing fees to 8% or 10%. For instance, Indiegogo takes a 5% cut and around 3% for payment processing fees (total around 8%), so you can donate without worries. Fresh Arts takes a 7% administrative fee to pay for the administrative work of making sure your charitable donation is appropriately handled. If you send them a check, that is all there is, but if you donate with a credit card or online, that standard 3% processing fee applies for Fresh Arts as well.
I want to donate, but my company might be interested in giving too. How do we do that?
There are corporate sponsorships available to support the project. Companies can donate an amount or utilize a matching program that encourages employees to give by matching their donations. For more information about corporate sponsorships, contact us.
I don't have much money, but I would like to donate a good to help the project. Can I do that instead?
