Allied Media Projects has developed a “Sponsored Projects” model that offers fiscal management, project planning, fundraising support, communications strategy, and other shared services to media projects working for a just, creative, and collaborative world. These “allied media projects” are autonomous and interdependent, working to grow their own capacity and the capacity of our network as a whole. We will share AMP’s “Sponsored Projects” model and welcome dialogue with others who are interested in this model.
