As students and independent filmmakers, we depend on the generosity of our relatives, friends, and other third party contributors to help our project become a reality. AFI has provided us with a $13,000 grant. We need your help to raise the remaining funds to see the film through to completion. Our goal is another $37,000, and we need 80% of it by January 31st, 2013, so please donate today by clicking here!

As a non-profit educational institution, American Film Institute holds a tax-exempt status. Donations toward the making of the film may be tax deductible under Section 170 of the US tax code. All contributions will receive a letter of acknowledgment from the American Film Institute that can be used for tax purposes.

We understand that some may not be able to contribute monetarily, but can contribute by in kind
donations such as: gifts of goods, services, or transfer of stock.

What are Gifts of Goods?
Gifts of good are items and/or products that help the production. Examples of goods are: food and drinks for craft service, props, locations and so on.

We are also in need of pre-production and production crewmembers (catering, production and post-production sound, hair and make-up, costumes, transportation, art department, etc.). If you are interested in being part of the film industry and are looking for experience or are just curious about how movies are made please contact our producer Tara Dales 1(323) 383-2126 for further details on how you can be part of the project.

Transfer of Stock
A donation of appreciated stock is a great way to make a tax-deductible contribution to the film. Also, it may minimize capital gains taxes. Your donation of securities will be valued at the average of the high and low values of your shares on the date of transfer.

The American Film Institute is a Non-Profit Educational Institution that has tax-exempt status under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
