Fiscal Sponsorship is a fundraising tool that serves as an alternative to establishing your own 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation to receive grants and donations. It allows filmmakers to apply for funding for noncommercial projects from organizations that require their recipients to have nonprofit status. In order to qualify for the fiscal sponsorship program, you must be a DFS member. We recommend the Filmmaker Membership.
If you’d prefer to complete the form in Word, please download and submit it send to Alison Greenberg at email@example.com.

DFS is a registered 501c(3), tax ID: 84-0771070 This person or corporation will also manage all funds raised, and will be responsible for reporting income/funds received for tax purposes.

Mer Sal of The Symbols’ Report of Scoop Nemeth’s Fashion Show
Mer Sal: [This event] was a success by all means. A seemingly autistic, mentally challenged man organized and ran a fashion runway swimsuit modeling show with pretty girls in swimsuits, as well as hiring The Symbols to play for an hour. All of this had an engaged, entertained studio audience and was broadcast on local Denver television. Furthermore, he sold PLENTY of tickets at $30 a ticket!!! That’s better than most local ANY BODY can do at such a high price!
We raised money, and everybody got their share. The Denver Open Media got some, and we raised a good share for our friend and videographer Bobby Kimble who is battling leukemia! Love to you, Bobby Kimble, and I hope you’re recovering, cause I wanna hang out again, film some more videos!
But I just really wanted to commend Scoop Nemeth, for being a genius and not knowing it! Your organizational skills are better than mine. People, you should have seen his preparations for this – he had spreadsheet files in a laptop, with all of the ticket buyers’ information on them. He gave marketing surveys to people at his fashion show to ask what they thought he could do better.
I think you never can win til you put yourself out there enough – and Scoop’s doing JUST THAT – and needs to keep doing that.
The night went well for a night in the entertainment world. And boy, was it entertaining!!!!!!!!
