Fiscal Sponsorship

What is “Fiscal Sponsorship”?

Fiscal sponsorship refers to the practice of non-profit organizations offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups engaged in activities related to the organization’s missions. It typically involves a fee-based contractual arrangement between a project and an established non-profit. See sample agreement.  Fiscal Sponsorship does NOT imply that the Film Office funds any projects directly.

What is the benefit of having a Fiscal Sponsor?

Engaging a Fiscal Sponsor allows you to apply for foundation grants available only to non profits and to offer individual donors a tax deduction for their donation to your project.
