Thank You!

We are a 501c3 Washington State Nonprofit (EIN 80-0782680) and are solely dependent on your donations. We are a predominantly volunteer-run organization, (only one part-time staff person); donations are needed to continue bringing you high-quality, relevant documentary films, AND to help us establish more venues so more people can participate. Thank you for any help you can provide!

Many employers have Matching Gift programs where they'll double the donations made by their employees and retirees (e.g., Adobe, Alaska Airlines, Boeing, Costco, Microsoft, Starbucks,  etc.). Please check if your employer is one of these, and if so, submit your matching gift requests to them so that your donation can go even further.

Also, some employers have Volunteer Grant programs where the company donates money to organizations for every hour its employees volunteer (e.g., Boeing, Microsoft, Alaska Airlines, etc). So come volunteer with us if you can!
