For Arts Professionals

Fiscal Sponsorships

We offer Fiscal Sponsorships for film, television, theatre and other projects which are in alignment with our mission. Being fiscally sponsored by a nonprofit means that your project gets to benefit from the 501(c)(3) status that we have, making your donors’ (monetary and in kind i.e. camera equipment, locations, food) gifts tax-deductible. A small percentage is charged in order to cover our administrative costs to oversee the fiscal sponsorship and budgetary documentation must be provided for our records. Email us to learn more or get started with the application process.

Trauma Consulting

We offer Trauma Consulting for arts professionals. If you are writing or developing a play, television show or film and want to make sure that you depict issues of mental illness, abuse, addiction and related topics in an accurate and trauma-informed way, please consider having our trauma-focused Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor consult on your project. Email us for details.

Talk Backs

We offer educational and inspirational Talk Backs after theatrical productions and film/TV screenings dealing with abuse and trauma and can provide mental health professionals for these events as well. If you are interested in booking us for a talk back, please email us so we can learn more about the needs for your project. Learn more about our Talk Backs.

Link Your Project To Our Resources

Want to add Healing TREE’s logo and website to the end of your film, television show, PSA, or theatre program, pointing your audience to our resources? Please email us.

Artist Advocates

We collaborate with working actors, singers, dancers, musicians, writers, composers, directors, producers, etc. to help achieve our mission. You can see our current Artist Advocates at the bottom of Our Team page here. We work with these artists, who align our mission and vision, to spread the word about Healing TREE’s life-saving and transforming work. There are many ways to get involved with our programming as an Artist Advocate, from being a part of our annual (Un)Gala (learn more here) to having a film, television or theatre project you’re involved with partnering with us via Fiscal Sponsorships, Trauma Consulting, Talk Backs and Linking Your Project To Our Resources. Learn more here. If you are interested in joining our community in this way, please email us your resume, bio and / or website and a note about why you want to get involved. We look forward to connecting with you!
