IAM is a non-profit fiscal sponsor that acts as an umbrella group for small art projects seeking tax-free status. They also provide business support including accounting, media services and project planning at minimal cost. Having recently tripled in size to 60 affiliates, IAM is transitioning from all volunteer staff to hiring their first employees. In 2016, Bently Foundation gave a $50,000 grant to IAM to help in this evolution. After the expansion, IAM’s self-sufficient business model will allow them to continue without ongoing grants.
