Give To JIMMY IN SAIGON

UNTIL NOVEMBER 30th 2021
one to one matches
for all gifts up to $5000

We now have $20,000 left to raise to finish post production sound, color, licensing fees, music soundtrack, animation and editing effects. Make your donation by November 30th take advantage of a $5000 matching grant offered by donor George Guerra, to get your name in the film’s credit ($500 and up) – but of course, gifts of any amount are welcome.

DONATE ONLINE NOW to make a tax deductible gift.

FURTHER OPTIONS: To make a quick, simple NON-tax deductible gift, you can send a Venmo donation to @jimmyinsaigon. You can also mail a check to Peter McDowell, 1525 Allesandro, Los Angeles, CA 90026. If you don’t need a tax deduction, make your check out to Peter McDowell. If you need a tax deduction and must pay by check, make it out to Film Independent. In this case, 7% will be retained by Film Independent and Jimmy In Saigon will receive 93% of the donation. Thanks!

With the generous support of Jimmy in Saigon fans, we are at picture lock stage, and are so close to finishing the film. To continue post-production, we are currently seeking to raise $20,000 to complete Jimmy in Saigon this year. So far, over the past years, we have raised $155,000 of our $175,000 goal through in-person and virtual events, a crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo, and individual giving and grant awards from the City of Chicago Cultural Affairs and the California Humanities Council. We continue to seek funds through grants and fellowships, by approaching potential donors and investors, and by seeking producers. Individual donations are deeply appreciated.

We are deeply thankful to our donors who have given so generously to our film. Jimmy in Saigon is an independent production and relies heavily on the support of individuals like you. Please consider donating to fund our future production, editing and post-production activities.
