Hi filmmaker! My name is Faith and I'm the publisher of Desktop Documentaries. I'll be guiding you through this course along with Hank Rogerson and Jilann Spitzmiller.
Hank and Jillan have raised more than $1-million for their documentary projects. Together we are putting together our best resources to help you raise the crucial funds needed to make your film. Think of us as your personal fundraising team guiding you every step of the way!
The GOAL of this course is to help you get started with fundraising. Or if you have already begun, to get you your NEXT round of funds and support.
By the way, Jilann and Hank are the co-creators of the Documentary Proposal Template Pack and Documentary Budget Template Pack (Bundle), perfect companions with this fundraising course which all come together as part of the Documentary Fundraising Tool Kit.
Imagine putting together a documentary pitch that helps you bring in tens of thousands of dollars (or MORE).

Your small investment has easily paid for itself!
