The Film Collaborative Fiscal Sponsorship

The Film Collaborative Fiscal Sponsorship

Fiscal Sponsorship is used when a non-profit film or film-related project or event wants to secure funding from individual, foundation, government or corporate sources that give only to nonprofit organizations with IRS tax-exempt status. To be considered exempt, an organization must hold a current 501(c)(3) certificate from the IRS.

To be considered for Fiscal Sponsorship projects must be consistent with the TFC’s charitable purposes, be creative, artistic and/or educational, not a work for hire and represent an imaginative contribution to the film or video art form.

TFC accepts applications from persons of any gender and ethnicity. The project may be in any stage of development, production and or post production or distribution.

TFC sponsors:

You always need a Film Business Plan to get funding from investors.

- Documentary feature & short films and other works of nonfiction
- Narrative feature & short films and other narrative works
- Transmedia/multi-media projects with film/video as a primary component of the work
- Film related events such as film festivals or screening series

As the Fiscal Sponsor for your project, TFC does not take any ownership of your project. We do not interfere on your creative vision or control, copyright, or prevent you from future sales or profit from your project. Our primary role is to assure that the money you raise is being properly dispersed and used for the project as intended.
