We need your support
Our small team provides unique filmmaker support, identifies powerful projects, aligns films with the aims of discerning funders, designs impact strategies, creates impact partner coalitions and offers strong financial governance.
To do this we need core support.
The security of multi-year funding enables us to plan effectively and with certainty. We are seeking philanthropic partners to contribute each year to grow and ensure our sustainability.
Leveraging your investment
Our model is proven and we are committed to empowering others. We are a lean machine that generates significant social return on investment with measurable impact.
Our core operational funding - which is raised from multi-year support, project retentions, government funding and philanthropic grants - is less than 15% of our total annual turnover.
Where the funds will go
Delivering unique educational training and resources that teach filmmakers how to attract and secure funding and deliver on impact objectives.
Inviting high potential documentaries into our Executive Producer Program where we broker partnerships on their behalf and ensure the success of the films and impact campaigns.
Cultivating partnerships and coordinating collaborations within our six issue areas.
Developing accessible measurement and evaluation frameworks for filmmakers and their impact partners.
Ensuring our documentaries reach diverse audiences and are widely used by educators, community groups and not-for-profits
Philanthropic donors and documentary filmmakers care about the same social issues.
These shared interests can inspire partnerships that can be immensely powerful. By connecting with documentary filmmakers, you can work toward mutual goals and effect long-lasting and positive social change.
How can documentaries increase the effectiveness of your giving?
By giving to social change documentaries, your philanthropy can become more effective and the impact of your giving more measurable and sustainable. You will see the effects of your philanthropy spread far beyond your initial act of giving, as the documentaries you help fund go on to produce tangible, positive and long-lasting social outcomes.
To make giving to documentaries even easier, we have Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, which means every donation you make through our website will be tax-deductible.
