WHAT WE DO

FISCAL SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM

What is Fiscal Sponsorship?

Fiscal sponsorship is a formal arrangement in which a 501 (c)(3) public charity, such as Film Delaware, agrees to sponsor a project that furthers our mission, for the purpose of fundraising through grants and donations. This alternative to starting your own non-profit allows you to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations for your documentary, with the oversight, support and endorsement of Film Delaware.

Our mission is simple; to support filmmakers and to further the art of filmmaking. Our Fiscal Sponsorship Program directly accomplishes this by helping to support films which might otherwise be unable to secure funding and be completed! As Fiscal Sponsors of your project Film Delaware will not take any ownership of your project, nor will we infringe upon your creative control, copyright, or prevent you from future sales or profit from your project. Film Delaware seeks to be as non-intrusive as possible in monitoring projects. For the most part, what we do is to assure that the money you raise is being properly dispersed, and used for the project as intended. If desired, we will assist filmmakers through the crucial phases of distribution and outreach, as well.
