Fiscal Sponsorship for Filmmakers

Whether its a short film, a documentary, or a narrative feature, fiscal sponsorship can be helpful in raising donated funds. In addition to loving your project, most donors want to take advantage of the tax benefits connected with donating to a non-profit. Thats where Living Stories can help. As a non-profit, Living Stories can accept donations on your projects behalf, thereby ensuring each donations eligibility for a potential tax break -- creating a win for both your film and your donor.
