Fiscal Sponsorship

STIFF Alumni can submit their projects for fiscal sponsorship. If approved, the filmmaker can use STIFF's 501 (c)(3) status as an "umbrella" when applying to government granting agencies and foundations that will only grant funds to non-profit organizations. Fiscally sponsored projects can also solicit tax-deductible donations from private individuals and businesses.

Fiscal sponsorship is not appropriate for all projects. In order to qualify, the projects must be noncommercial in nature and the filmmaker may not also raise funds by soliciting investors. For more information about the program and about how to apply, please contact the AFS Artist Services department by emailing
