Giving Tuesday matching gift challenge SURPASSED!

Giving Tuesday Thank You Image

The Fur-Bearers have a lot to be thankful for following an incredibly successful Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign.

A donor who wishes to remain anonymous offered The Fur-Bearers $10,000 toward Trapped In The Past, the documentary we’re working with Exposed Wildlife Conservancy to produce. But there was a catch: we had to get at least $10,000 from other supporters. This is known as a matching gift challenge – and did you ever respond!

The Fur-Bearers surpassed our week-long goal of $10,000 by Wednesday morning, meaning we’ve officially secured the matching gift of $10,000, too. This funding is being put straight to work, getting film crews into the field and booking interviews and research projects.

Opportunities for receiving a producer title remain in place, as more funding for the project will be required. Supporters who donate $2,500 will be named as Associate Producers in the end credits of the documentary, and supporters who donate $5,000 will be named Executive Producers in both the opening and ending credits.

The series is slated to go public in November 2022, and a full-length version will be produced for submission to festivals and other viewing opportunities. This project has the potential to be a gamechanger for wildlife in Canada, and we cannot wait to share more with all of you as it advances.
