      Hi Dana,
      Actually, you can. You can send it to Los Angeles Filmforum as a tax deductible donation intended fo a particular film. That is what our normal fiscal sponsorship program is all about. And not such a % would be taken out (Kickstarter & Amazon payments each take their %.) Indeed, if I don't make my goal, I will ask all our donors to do just that.
      So why have a Kickstarter campaign? Having a Kickstarter campaign is a useful way 1) to actually do the work of having a campaign with a deadline; 2) to reach new people.

      It's so dumb that this is all or nothing -- why can't we just donate the same amount direct to you?

      Wow! We just crossed $15,000! This is incredible. Thank you all so much who keep coming out in support of this project. It means so much to all of us. With six days to go, we are working around the clock to find partners and supporters like you who want to ensure that this story is told. Thank you again! If each backer found one more person to donate, we would be in great shape for the finish!
