How to Donate

The Old World and the Old West has already received grants totaling $75,000 for research, pre-production and initial production. We are currently seeking $200,000 of the film’s $750,000 budget, to continue and complete the production/location shooting phase before we begin post-production.

Donations to The Old World and the Old West are tax deductible through its fiscal sponsor, Women Make Movies, Inc. Established in 1972, Women Make Movies (WMM), Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit media arts organization registered with the New York Charities Bureau of New York State. WMM accepts charitable donations or grants on behalf of the project and takes the responsibility of administering the funds received. Grants will be spent only toward the production and completion of the film.

Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law, and a confirmation of the donation will be sent via email. For donations of $250 or more, WMM will send an acknowledgment letter in the mail to the address listed for tax purposes.
