Frequently Asked Questions

Confused about some of the membership benefits? Let’s see if we can clear it up for you!

What is fiscal sponsorship?

Fiscal sponsorship refers to the practice of non-profit organizations offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups—typically projects—engaged in activities related to the sponsoring organization’s mission.

What is the script/design doc database?

Our board, staff, and members are contributing to and curating a database of playable works that we are making available to our member community. The idea here is that by seeing how others document their playable works, practicioners can grow and improve their own writing, formatting, and processes! 

What is meant by 'Producer licensing options'?

Some of our members choose to allow others to produce their work. Typically this works as an artist extending a license to the producer for a share of the net profit of the production, or for a flat fee. We have created licensing templates for our members to use, and some of the playable works will have these licenses attached to them with the terms that the author is willing to extend to interested producers. 

What is a pass-thru donation?

Sometimes, people like to give to an author or creator that they want to support, but that person may not have non-profit status set up. When that’s the case, the donor recieves no tax benefit for their contribution. Pass-thru donations enable your donors to gain the benefit of the tax write-off. We charge a small administrative fee for this service because it simply costs us time to send donation receipts and disburse funds. 

My company is growing, which level should I choose?

If you’re not sure after looking over the options above, feel free to chat with us by submitting the form below, or joining our Discord and DMing the admins for a further conversation! We’ll do our best to help you decide. 

What sort of templates and resources are available?

We’re adding more ALL THE TIME! Currently, we have: a primer on everything you need to know for applying for federal grants; credentials & scheduling best practices for our shared paid Zoom account (great for rehearsals!); legal templates for licensing. Coming soon are: production budgeting templates; press kit basic, how-to courses on event production; grant deadline calendar; and much more!
