Women Make Movies Fiscal Sponsorship Deadline 6/15

Posted on June 07, 2013

Are you a filmmaker looking for financial support from funders? Need guidance and resouces for a current production? Don't miss your chance to become a Women Make Movies (WMM) fiscally sponsored filmmaker! Fiscal Sponsorship is designed for women filmmakers who are actively fundraising for their film or video project and need 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt status.

Fiscal Sponsorship allows your non-commercial project to apply for funding from organizations that require non-profit status. Non-profit tax-exempt status is required by many foundations, corporations and government agencies (including Pacific Islanders in Communications) in order to be eligible for funding since many do no accept application proposals from individuals. Additionally, 501(c)(3) status allows you to receive charitable deductible contributions from individuals—a major incentive for individuals considering making a donation to your project.
