Indiegogo has partnered with Women Make Moviesto provide a single platform to integrate fiscal sponsorship and online funding campaigns
About Women Make Movies
From art houses to festivals to broadcasts, Women Make Movies, a non-profit feminist media organization, is the world's leading distributor of films by and about women, with over 600 films in our catalog. WMM's acclaimed Production Assistance (PA) Program assists women directors and producers from concept to completion. Films from Women Make Movies have won awards at the Sundance Film Festival and have been nominated or won an Academy Award, including last year's SUN COME UP. Informative, inspirational and alternately heartbreaking and joyous, WMM films bring women's lives to the screen.
What is Fiscal Sponsorship?
Fiscal Sponsorship is a financial and legal system by which a legally recognized 501(c)(3) public charity (such as Women Make Movies) provides limited financial and legal oversight for a campaign initiated independently by an artist. That campaign might be a one-time project or an independent artist or even an arts organization that does not have its own 501(c)(3) status. Once sponsored in this way, the campaign is eligible to solicit and receive grants and tax-deductible contributions that are normally available only to 501(c)(3) organizations.
