AFS MAKE members can submit their projects for fiscal sponsorship. If approved, the filmmaker can use AFS's 501 (c)(3) status as an "umbrella" when applying to government granting agencies and foundations that will only grant funds to non-profit organizations. Fiscally sponsored projects can also solicit tax-deductible donations from private individuals and businesses.

Fiscal sponsorship is not appropriate for all projects. In order to qualify, the projects must be noncommercial in nature and the filmmaker may not also raise funds by soliciting investors. For more information about the program and about how to apply, please contact the AFS Artist Services department by emailing

EXTERNAL GRANT SUBMISSION FORM *Please only fill this out if you are already an AFS fiscally sponsored project. If you are planning to submit to a grant, please use this form so we can evaluate your request. Please allow 4-6 weeks in order to process your request. We cannot guarantee approval for last minute requests. Thank you for your understanding.
