Since 1998, the IDA's fiscal sponsorship program has helped hundreds of documentaries get funded and finished! Last year our filmmakers raised over $&M to get their documentaries made and seen. Through our partnership with Seed & Spark, IDA offers our sponsored projects the opportunity to utilize the power of a dynamic crowd funding platform while offering a valuable tax deduction to donors.
