Fiscal Sponsorship and how it works.

Greetings, dear supporters and fellow advocates for environmental preservation,
As I embark on the thrilling endeavor of creating the documentary film “Beyond the Salish Sea,” I want to shed light on a critical aspect of our funding model – fiscal sponsorship. While the term might sound unfamiliar to some, it’s an essential mechanism that enables projects like mine to thrive and make a tangible impact on the world.

So, what exactly is fiscal sponsorship, and how does it contribute to realizing “Beyond the Salish Sea”?

In essence

Fiscal sponsorship is a mutually beneficial partnership between an individual or a group working on a project and a nonprofit organization. This nonprofit serves as the fiscal sponsor, providing administrative support and oversight for the project’s finances while allowing it to operate under the nonprofit’s tax-exempt status.

Now, you might wonder, “How does this relate to the making of ‘Beyond the Salish Sea’?” Allow me to explain.

We ensure transparency, accountability, and legitimacy in our fundraising efforts by partnering with a reputable nonprofit agency as our fiscal sponsor. Our fiscal sponsor acts as a bridge between generous donors like you and our documentary project, handling financial transactions securely and ethically.

The kicker

But here’s the kicker – fiscal sponsorship is not a scam; it’s a legitimate fundraising and project management avenue. Our chosen nonprofit agency is registered, recognized, and committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity and accountability. This means that every dollar you donate toward “Beyond the Salish Sea” is in safe hands and will be used exclusively for the production and distribution of our documentary.

Furthermore, fiscal sponsorship empowers us to focus on what truly matters – creating a compelling and impactful film highlighting the beauty of the Salish Sea and the urgency of protecting it from the ravages of climate change. With the administrative burden lifted, we can dedicate our time and energy to storytelling, research, and outreach efforts to inspire positive change.

In summary, fiscal sponsorship is not just a means to an end – it’s a collaborative partnership rooted in trust, transparency, and shared values. By supporting “Beyond the Salish Sea” through our fiscal sponsorship model, you’re not only contributing to the creation of a documentary but also joining us in our mission to raise awareness and advocate for the preservation of our precious natural resources.

I am grateful

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for considering this explanation and your unwavering support. Together, we can make a difference – one documentary, one donation, and one step toward a sustainable future at a time.

With boundless appreciation and determination,

Daniel A. Cardenas
