How do our social impact projects get made and seen?
The Clowder Group is a social entrepreneurship. We fund our work in two ways:
1. Tax-deductible donations from individuals and organizations pay for the creation of our independent documentaries. Donated funds are managed through our fiscal sponsor, the non-profit arts organization, Center for Independent Documentary, a 501c3 in Boston, MA. Disbursements are made on an as-needed basis corresponding to the film's budget.
2. Upon completion of certain projects, The Clowder Group, LLC acts as distributor accepting screening and appearance fees as well as charging end-user licenses in order to pass on the on-going expense of outreach as well as seed future social impact documentaries.
A small staff is paid through both parts of this process. Our 2019 budget was less than $250,000
