In addition to the events and exhibits that Arts Council volunteers organize, we also serve as Fiscal Sponsors for various arts and culture organizations. These are individuals and groups that have great ideas and enthusiasm, a leadership structure or plan, and the ability to produce their own events and services.
They all contribute something unique and important to our community and they need to have the sponsorship of a an organization that is incorporated, in good standing with the State of NM, and recognized as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Las Vegas Arts Council is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization which allows donations to be tax-deductible as allowed by law, we filed the annual 990 form, filed information with the Attorney General’s “Charitable Organization Registration Online System,” have a “Certificate of Good Standing” with the Secretary of State, and have earned the Silver Seal of Transparency with GuideStar which is the largest source of nonprofit information and has collected results information from more than 13,000 nonprofits.
We are proud to sponsor…
THE LITERACY COUNCIL OF
NORTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO
The Mohawk Tenor
Marcos Vigil (The Mohawk Tenor) originally hails from Las Vegas New Mexico, and currently resides in New York City. He strives to take classical vocal foundations learned over the years, and apply them to not only classical vocal literature, but other genres as well. It will be a mash-up of genres and styles, with offerings from the traditional to the unexpected. To see and hear what he is about, click here.
We also helped to launch the Gillingham Musicians Fund, Meadow City Academy of Music and the Nat Gold Players, serving as their fiscal sponsors while they built up the capital and the experience to launch their own 501(c)3 organizations.
Thank you for your interest!
