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.
We would be delighted to hear from you, discuss further with you about our work and how you can get involved: contact us.
Become our patron
Funding for our work at Tipping Point North South 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 set up a crowdfunding page on the established platform Patreon. Please visit our Patreon page if you are interested in becoming our patron or reading about our latest activities (we also have a blog there).
