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) contributions 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 about the application process. Please note, Fiscal Sponsorship does not mean that the nonprofit provides funding for your project.

Trauma Consulting

We offer Trauma Consulting for arts professionals. If you are writing or developing a film, television show, play or other arts project 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 collaborating with one of our trauma consultants. We have Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Stephanie Mangan, as well as Healing TREE Founding Executive + Artistic Director, actor and producer, Marissa Ghavami, currently on our trauma consulting roster. If they are not the best fit for your project, we may be able to connect you with someone who is. Our typical rate is $120/hr split between Healing TREE and the consultant. This is negotiable per project based on project budget and scope of work. Email us to learn more about the application process.

Theatre Authority Fundraising Beneficiary

According to Actors’ Equity Association, “If you are planning a fundraising benefit or telethon and wish to engage Equity actors and stage managers, you must clear your event through the Theatre Authority. Theatre Authority is a nonprofit organization that administers and regulates the free appearances of performers and provides assistance to members of the theatrical community.” 

Healing TREE is grateful to be the 501(c)(3) nonprofit beneficiary of such productions that are in alignment with our mission. Email us to learn more about the application process.

Arts Partnerships

We offer Arts Partnerships for film, television, theatre and other projects which are in alignment with our mission. Partnering with Healing TREE in this way could look like:

  • Cross promotion on our websites and social media
  • Linking your audience to our resources through our logo and a phrase like this in your film or television closing credits or theatre program: “To learn more about healing abuse and trauma, please visit www.healingtreenonprofit.org.” 
  • Potential talk backs after theatrical productions and film / television screenings 
  • Potential trauma professionals on any related panels  

Email us to learn more about the application process.

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 Gala (learn more here) to having a project you are involved in partner with us via the above ways. 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!
