MATCHING FUNDS CAMPAIGN

View fullscreen

Non-profit, Marine Environmental Research Corp. (MERC), is generously offering to match funds up to $10,000 to help with remaining production costs for this film.

If we can get $10,000 in donations by May 15, 2018, our goal of reaching a total of $20,000 will be reached. Every donation received, no matter how big or small, will be matched dollar-for-dollar until the deadline. This Matching Funds Campaign is ready to begin now!

Watch Dave Miller’s outstanding promo video above, and see how great this film is going to be and why it is so important to promote. The links below will give you film details and info on how to donate online or by check.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to have your donation matched. Thank you for your interest and for helping us promote this great film!
