|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.
