As a working composer, it is imperative to find funding for my pieces. Many people are unaware that they can commission individual artists and receive tax benefits for their generosity. After completing a residency at the Copland House, I have established a relationship with the organization where they can act as my fiscal sponsor. This means that they can accept commissions on my behalf, and because they are a registered non-profit, provide all of the necessary receipts for the patron to file with their taxes as a charitable donation.
If you or someone you know is interested in commissioning an artist, I would be thrilled to discuss future projects that can even cater personally to the patron and their budget. Thanks for your consideration, and please contact me via the contact form with any inquiries.
