Fiscal Sponsorship Program
This program is in a restructuring period as of May 2018. We will announce our next round of rolling consideration deadlines in summer 2018. Applications will be accepted during this time, but decisions will likely be held until August.
Milwaukee Film’s Fiscal Sponsorship Program is an initiative designed to support local filmmakers and film projects that advance its organizational mission. Fiscally sponsored projects will be able to solicit funds from government, foundation, individual, and other philanthropic sources without needing to obtain their own 501(c)(3) status. Milwaukee Film will, in turn, provide financial-reporting support and more.
The application for fiscal sponsorship is free of charge and open year-round, with three deadlines per year. To apply, project owners must be Milwaukee Film members in good standing. Once fiscally sponsored projects are completed, Milwaukee Film will make efforts to present sponsored films publicly in Milwaukee.
