To date the production has raised $144,000 of the film's $230,000 budget. And while we have continually sought support from foundations and organizations in the form of grants, our biggest source of funding has come from the generosity of individual donors like you.

Make a tax-deductible gift right now to Dear Anna Olson and help us deliver its message of the power of kindness and compassion to the big screen today!

It is more important than ever to maintain this momentum if the production is to reach its delivery date of October 1st, 2013. This is especially crucial in order to meet key festival deadlines, which would make Dear Anna Olson eligible for Academy Award™ consideration. (Please see our PLANS FOR DISTRIBUTION for further details.)

While any gift you make is greatly appreciated we ask you to consider the benefits of donating at the following levels:

A SPECIAL OFFER! Composer, Cory Gabel, has been a solid supporter of Dear Anna Olson for the past five years. He continues this relationship by donating 50 copies of his album of solo piano works, Alabaster Sky, to our current fundraising efforts. Now, anyone making a tax-deductible donation of $50 or more will receive a copy of this CD as a thank you gift.

What will this mean to the film? The math: 50 CDs x $50 = $2,500. Achieving this goal would allow us to cover a substantial portion of our editing costs, or more, if donations are made at the Sponsor or Dear Friend Of Anna levels of giving. Please take advantage of this special offer by showing your support today.

Thank You!
