What Your Donation Funds
Your donation goes directly to pay the cast, crew, and production team salaries, cover production expenses, and send the film out into the world!
Thanks to many in-kind donations and the comparatively low cost of shooting in Washington State, we only need to raise $360K
(Note: a low budget film is considered to be any film made for under $700K).
The pre production phase includes all of the tasks that take place before the film is shot:
- shot list and story boards
- hire crew and cast
- secure locations
- set and costume design
- pay production team
The production phase includes all activities related to shooting the film
pay production team, cast and crew, and animal wranglers
cater meals and snacks
rent and build costumes and props
The post production phase includes all of the activities required to turn the footage into a film.

add sound design (also called foley)
graphic art and CGI
Marketing and promotional materials

In addition to cash donations, Finding Family is accepting in-kind donations of food, materials, equipment, and services.
