Fiscal Sponsorship


Pittsburgh Filmmakers offers fiscal sponsorship to meet the needs of individual artists because many corporate funders and foundations restrict grant making to fully tax-exempt organizations. Filmmakers' Conduiting Program provides artist projects with the ability to apply for funding and other resources available only to organizations with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. PF/PCA takes a 5% admin fee from funds received, and to participate in the program, artists must be access members in good standing.

In order to apply for the program, an applicant must be a PF/PCA access member in good standing. Filmmakers requires an applicant to complete and send in an application accompanied by a project proposal which includes a detailed description/treatment of the project, fundraising and distribution plan, résumés of key personnel, a list of project advisors (as applies), a budget and a sample reel or portfolio of past work. The proposal will be reviewed by a PF/PCA staff.

Once a project is accepted into the Conduiting Program, PF/PCA will administer and turn over all funding raised by the artist after deducting a 5% administrative fee.
