Spark Reimbursement

Each production will receive an equal share in the amount raised during the Spark campaign. You have two options of how to receive this money:

  • Reimbursement (preferred method)
    If you don’t get a cash advance, but rather spend the money out of pocket, then you can submit those receipts for reimbursement. You will need to submit the Foundation Voucher, along with itemized receipts, and meal sign-in sheets (if there is any food). We will then send these to the Foundation, who will send a check for you to pick up from the CMPA main office, which will take approximately 2 weeks.
  • Cash Advance (if you are in a pinch)
    Submit a Foundation Voucher form. We will send the request to the Foundation, and they will send a check for you to pick up from the CMPA main office. It will take approximately 2 weeks to get the check. Then, within 2 weeks after your production wraps, you will need to submit another Foundation Voucher form, along with itemized receipts, and meal sign-in sheets (if there is any food). 

Important guidelines/restrictions

  • Travel: The Foundation will reimburse for travel, so if you have any airfare, hotels, fuel, rental car, etc charges, you can get reimbursed from this fund.
  • Services: If you would like to pay someone for services (e.g. makeup artists, security guards, etc.), and you want that money to come from the Spark fund, then you will need to fill out a different form, and the Foundation will pay the person directly. Contact Tony if you are in this situation.
