Socially Responsible Film Making
 
SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FILM INVESTING
The producer of The River Why is very interested in the promise of socially responsible film investing, therefore, this film is a hybrid financed by both equity investments and donations.
 

Our fiscal sponsor for donations is the San Francisco Film Society.

Donations made for The River Why are used for the production and treated, in a sense, like an investment.

A pro rata share of revenues is recycled to other non-profits—particularly environmental programs that support rivers and fish.

Recipients will be chosen by a board of donors.

This is a win-win for the movie and for the non-profits: it raises awareness – and financial support for both.

We hope to include “extras” about the non-profits that receive donations on the DVD when it is released.
