I’m very excited to announce that From the Heart Productions will now act as the fiscal sponsor for my new feature film project, Suburban Blues, City Lights!
I’m incredibly grateful to collaborate with From the Heart Productions. They are an amazing non-profit with a mission to “help fund films that are unique and make a contribution to society“–what more could I ask for in a fiscal sponsor?
If you’re not familiar with the term “fiscal sponsorship”, here’s a basic overview…
“Fiscal sponsorship refers to the practice of non-profit organizations offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups engaged in activities related to the organization’s missions. It typically involves a fee-based contractual arrangement between a project and an established non-profit.”
What that means for my project…
I’m able to apply to grants that require a fiscal sponsor and also solicit donations from individuals and corporations. In addition to becoming part of a purpose-driven feature film project, the amazing benefit to donors is that…
All Contributions are Tax-Deductible
Thanks to fiscal sponsorship through From the Heart Productions, Suburban Blues, City Lights is under the umbrella of 501(c)3 status, meaning…
Any dollar amount that an individual contributes can be used as a 1:1, 100% tax deductible dollar donation.
From the Heart Productions will take a 7% service charge on credit cards (5% on checks) and the rest of the dollar amount will reach our production. From the Heart will provide a receipt to all donors to use under the itemized deductions in the donations portion of their taxes. Donors can then use the 100% tax deductible amount to adjust their gross income.

I’m going to integrate a more formal pitch video later on, but wanted to share the exciting news with you all today!
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
