Women’s Voices Now prides itself in being a resource and ally to women filmmakers and/or content creators making films about women. WVN is available for consultation on film and other women’s rights-centric projects as well as offering our services as a fiscal sponsor.
Many foundations and individuals will not issue grants to individual filmmakers but only to non-profit organizations, so instead of starting their own 501(c)3 organization, filmmakers often align themselves with an established non-profit, allowing them to apply for a wide range of grants and offer their donors a tax deduction.
Women’s Voices Now (WVN) offers low-cost fiscal sponsorship to independent producers internationally to help support the work of women filmmakers and/or media creators of any gender telling important stories about women.
The cost of applying for the WVN Fiscal Sponsorship Program is a one-time payment of $40.00USD. This fee is for reviewing and processing all fiscal sponsorship applications and is non-refundable. WVN is is an organization that accepts and administers contributions made to our members’ projects, monitors reports to ensure that grant funds are spent in accordance with funder requirements, acting as the liaison between grantmakers and filmmakers.
Should your project be accepted, you will be asked to sign our Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement.
Women’s Voices Now is always available to guide and help filmmakers along every step of their creative process. Here are some helpful links for filmmakers looking for resources. Please contact us with any more specific questions you might have.
