Fiscal Sponsorship Program

Fiscal Sponsorship Program

As fundraisers ourselves, we understand that it’s easier to raise money for projects when donors can make a tax-deductible gift. That’s why we offer fiscal sponsorships to storytellers working to protect and restore the planet for current and future generations.

Our Fiscal Sponsorship Program extends our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status to independent filmmakers so they can solicit tax-deductible donations from individuals, foundations and other grantors. The Redford Center then takes stewardship of the funds and is responsible for making sure they are being used for their intended purpose.

While we certainly aren’t the only organization offering fiscal sponsorships, we differentiate ourselves by providing individualized attention and support throughout the filmmaking process – everything from making personal introductions to promoting the projects to providing feedback on cuts.

And rest assured, storytellers do not give up any ownership rights or creative control of their film by utilizing a fiscal sponsor.
