Fiscal sponsorship offers filmmakers a formal arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) public charity, such as LFS, 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 film, with the oversight, support and endorsement of LFS.

As Fiscal Sponsors on your project, LFS will not take any ownership of your project, nor will we infringe on your creative control, copyright, or prevent you from future sales or profit from your project. LFS seeks to be as non-intrusive as possible in monitoring projects. The main thing we do is to assure that the money you raise is being properly dispersed and used for the project as intended.
