I am trying to put together a grant proposal to receive funding for my short film project.
I have produced three short films in the past which we funded through self-financing, loans, credit cards, and donations. These were very low budget.
This is my first short where I would need a larger amount that cannot be fully funded with the preceding methods.
We've already filmed 80% of it and have had a successful Indiegogo Campaign which you can see here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/civic-mind-film#/
We need to film one more day and then fund our post-production.
I also have a 501(c) non-profit organization as our fiscal sponsor.
At the moment I am aiming for the Jerome Foundation Grant. But bonus points if you can recommend any other Grants that cater to short films. I would like to use this proposal for 1-2 more potential grant opportunities.
I have never written a grant proposal and have been reading tips online. I have a few write ups including bios of main crew attached, as well as a detailed, professional budget breakdown, etc.
Budget is limited but am willing to compromise and negotiate as this is something I need to have done. (Please disregard the number proposed in budget below. I had to put a number in there)
Please let me know your availability, interests, and ideal rate for this kind of work.
Please also inform me with your past experience in this field (short film grant proposals). I strongly prefer someone who has had experience writing grants for film or any other related art
