Support Jaffa Films progressive mission by supporting the production and distribution of non- profit documentary film projects. We accept donations via our fiscal sponsor- City Lore.

The Fiscal Sponsor

City Lore is an organization dedicated to the preservation of New York City’s, and America’s living cultural heritage. City Lore is a non-profit organization founded in 1986 to produce programs and publications that convey the richness of New York City’s cultural heritage. A multicultural, multiracial, non-profit media arts organization which facilitates the production, promotion, distribution and exhibition of independent films and media.

What is Fiscal Sponsorship ?

As the fiscal sponsor, City Lore accepts donations, services or grants on behalf of the filmmaker and takes the responsibility of administering the funds received in support of the development and completion of the film.

Fiscal sponsorship allows a project to accept funds that require non profit tax-exempt status. Non-profit status is required by many foundations, corporations and government agencies in order to be eligible for funding since many do not accept applications from individuals. Additionally, the partnership between artist and City Lore allows the filmmaker to receive tax- exempt contributions from individuals, a major incentive for individuals who are considering making a donation to a project.
