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 & grants in amounts ranging from $10 – $25,000. Many donors have an asterisk* by their name indicating they are a REPEAT DONOR – donating multiple times in small, moderate or large amounts amounts over the course of all fundraising – making participating easier for them. Donations are cumulative for each donor. All repeat donors 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. You, too, may donate at any time – multiple times – to increase your “standing” in the credits.

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.


OUR MOST RECENT DONORS SINCE WE MET THE MATCH. NO SPECIAL CAMPAIGN AT THIS TIME, but we are moving towards the final $18K needed. Thank you to those helping to provide funding for the IMPACT CAMPAIGN involving packaging, licensing, marketing, legal, and distribution costs. Repeat donors indicated by *asterisk, and individuals’donations need to total $350 or more to be placed in the final film credits.

Each donor’s contribution has been DOUBLED in impact – made possible by matching funds from the James G. Hanes Memorial Fund Don’t forget a donation at the “Witness” Level of $350 will get your name in the film’s final credits.

Thank You, “FIRST WAVE” Supporters! You Got Us Going!
Any donor who jumped in with support by early November 2016 – the start of the fundraising – were guaranteed recognition in the film’s final credits – regardless of amount given!

* indicates a donor who has made repeat donations during overall fundraising – our heroes! If their donations also tallied at $350+, then they were ALSO placed in a 2nd final credit category reflecting their total donated to the film’s success.

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. Several of them have already donated at that level – or more – securing their place in the film’s final credits. * indicates a repeat donor over the course of all fundraising. Thank you all very much.
