Fiscal Sponsorship

To help support the creation of human rights and social justice and social issue projects, The Human Family is dedicated to helping independent narrative and documentary projects of all types get funded, finished and seen. Our fiscal sponsorship program is open to independent filmmakers and artist, regardless of education, background or previous credits. Whether this is your first project, if you’ve been making films and exhibitions for a better part of your life, or if you have an idea and a plan, we can help.

What is Fiscal Sponsorship?

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