Year organization became a 501(c)(3): 2010
Year of first fiscal sponsorship: 2012
Number of sponsored projects: 1

Fiscal sponsorship fee:
We charge an initial $75 application fee and then, if the project is appropriate according to the mission of the organization, and we are interested, we will enter into a contract with project manager(s) to act as a re-granting organization. The IIPF retains 10% of all funds submitted by donors or grant organizations for administrative purposes before re-granting to the project under the Fiscal Sponsorship arrangement under Gregory Colvin’s Model C of Fiscal Sponsorship. (About Model C and other models of Fiscal Sponsorship, and before application, please see: Adler  Colvin.)

Eligibility criteria:

  • Aligned mission/values: Projects must involve media and/or information (can also include research projects with aggregation, analysis and dissemination of data) as it concerns international relations and/or humanitarian affairs.
  • Other: Again, projects can be media-related (art, photojournalism, film, television, publishing, web, interactive, performance, etc.) or examining the role of information–but in relation to international relations and/or humanitarian affairs.

  • Other: Advising on projects, if appropriate. We only offer bookkeeping and accounting for the incoming grants and donations, and subsequent re-granting to the specific project(s) as appropriate for Model C; each project is different and depending upon the relationship desired or appropriate, we may offer advice if asked.
