Support our work
When there is so much to challenge in the world, when there is so much to make better, how can one person make a difference? Supporting films with strong campaigns has more impact that you realise. Tipping Point North South and its Film Fund works across films, campaigns and events to make this difference.
Ways to donate:
- Become our patron via Patreon (Paypal, Credit/Debit card accepted)
- Make donations with Direct Debit (hosted on Tipping Point North South)
Become our patron
Funding for all our work at Tipping Point North South – including our Film Fund – comes, in part, from concerned individuals who share our belief in the power of ordinary people coming together to push for social justice. All our activities – films, events, campaigns – tackle important, political and often marginalised social, economic and environmental issues. This, in addition to our own ethical requirement, limits our sources of funding, especially in this current climate of austerity. Our main sources of funding to date, namely grants and major donors, have also been hit by the recession. Nevertheless, our belief that our “creative activism” is integral to a healthy civil society is reflected in the feedback we receive about our work. We know it chimes with concerned citizens, many of whom express their admiration and encourage us to carry on. This makes us determined to build on the reputation gained, along with key creative partnerships formed in recent years, to expand the scale and scope of our work.
This is why we are reaching out to you – to ask you to join our core patron base. With your support, we can spend all our time and energy on our core work – executive producing films, managing social-action campaigns and organising campaigning events – and make a difference to the world around us without the need to worry about day-to-day costs and expenses. You can be the “tipping point” to enable our Film Fund to significantly support one or two films in any given year, as well as in-house funding to organise international/national social justice events and campaigns.
We have chosen to use the established international crowdfunding platform Patreon to manage our patrons and their donations. Unlike Kickstarter, it is not one-off project based; rather, it focuses on helping us gain sustainable income so we can concentrate on realising our “creative activism” by continuously making feature documentaries, creating events and taking our social justice campaigns forward. Patrons can pay with Paypal, Credit/Debit cards. Patreon make it much easier for us to manage our relationships with our patrons, to interact with them and to communicate with them more frequently than our regular newsletters.
Please visit our Patreon page if you are interested in becoming our patron or reading about our latest activities (all our activities are blogged there).
Alternatively, if you are a British resident, you can make one-off or regular donations to us here with Direct Debit via our GoCardless account, whose service is also used by Tax Justice Network. You can also donate directly to us through our PayPal account here.
We would be delighted to hear from you, discuss further with you about our work and how you can get involved.
