Fiscal Sponsorship with the Denver Film Society

Fiscal Sponsorship is a fundraising tool that serves as an alternative to a filmmaker establishing her own 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation to receive grants and donations. It allows a filmmaker’s non-commercial project to apply for funding from organizations requiring that the recipient have nonprofit status. In order to be eligible for fiscal sponsorship, you must be a current member of the Denver Film Society.
