More good news for our fundraising efforts came from Grantmakers in Film and Electronic Media (GFEM) which has accepted Threads for its online database. The project proposal is here on the GFEM website. GFEM serves as a central location for grantmakers and grant seekers to come together. Having our project in the GFEM database puts it before a broad range of potential funders. We really appreciate the quick turnaround by GFEM staff in reviewing and approving Threads for posting.
We are also thankful to the Puffin Foundation: a prerequisite for inclusion in the GFEM database is to have at least one foundation or corporate grant already. Once we received word of the Puffin grant we were able to apply to GFEM immediately. The next step, we hope, will be fiscal sponsorship so that U.S. donors to the film can receive a tax deduction.
