Thank You to Our Donors

Projects like this cannot happen without the participation of many people. Some donate their time, others their talent, and still others, their hard-earned cash.

This page is dedicated to the financial supporters who would like to help change the conversation about criminal justice reform in the United States.

We have received donations in amounts ranging from $20 – $5,000. Many donors, as you will notice, are donating multiple times in smaller amounts that make participating easier for them. Donations are cumulative for each donor. All repeat donors will have their gifts tallied prior to the final credits for the film being completed…to see what their final category of acknowledgment is for possible final film credits.

There are now new categories of donor support, and these will be updated by March 15. Final credits in the film begin at the $350+ level of support. However, ALL donors are recognized indefinitely on this website, our film’s Facebook page upon receiving their donation, and on our events media materials.

So, take a last look now at how our donors are organized. They will all be re-categorized by donor amount after March 15th as we now move more quickly towards the completion of the film. For now, our hats are off to our wonderful, expanding community of supporters as you look at the campaigns they have participated in – including our current “Strike a Match” $5,000 challenge which ends March 27, 2017.


Current “Strike a Match!” $5,000K Challenge Donors / Deadline March 27th
Each donor’s contribution has been DOUBLED in impact – made possible by matching funds from early supporters, Eva Wu & Randy Royer. Wouldn’t you like to join this list? These donors must still reach the “Witness” category level of $350 or more to be included in the film’s final credits. These donors have really stepped up to the challenge to date. We are very grateful!

Thank You, “ROUGH CUT RIDERS!” You “Rode” Multiple New Versions of the Film. We could not have moved forward without these donors who took us to new heights on this wild editing ride phase of the film! They were rewarded with an evening event exclusively for them and their guests which included food, adult beverages,and footage never seen before from our film interviews. This group of donors would all need to still meet the $350+ “Witness” level of support to be included in the film’s final credits. Twelve of them have already donated at that level – or more – securing their place in the film’s final credits. Thank you all very much.
