The non-profit organization, From the Heart Productions, is partnering with the film production of Hooked so that all contributions
toward the movie are tax-deductible. “From the Heart Productions, Inc. is honored to provide fiscal sponsorship for the feature film project, Hooked,” says Carole Dean, the president of the non-profit. “We carefully select the films we sponsor, and believe that Hooked will make a positive contribution to society and to the field of filmmaking.”
From the Heart has been successfully partnering with films since 1993 as a 501(c)3. They are classified as a public charity so that any monetary donations or non-cash contributions qualify as charitable contributions under the U.S. Tax Code. The organization issues receipts for the value of those goods or services as needed. From the Heart Productions will administer any funds received in support of Hooked. In 2017 and 2018, Great Non-Profits named From the Heart Productions as a top-rated non-profit.
“We carefully select the films we sponsor, and believe that Hooked will make a positive contribution to society and to the field of filmmaking.”
Hooked is a romantic comedy that brings attention to human trafficking. The screenplay to Hooked has won multiple awards and the film is working toward going into production this August in Seattle. The film will be directed by Allen Wolf and the production team is made up of a mix of professionals and over 200 volunteers.
“As fiscal sponsor for Hooked, we will be closely monitoring its progress. We will contribute advice and feedback where needed on fundraising initiatives, trailers, rough cuts, festival submissions, distribution, and outreach strategies,” says Dean. “We are proud to endorse Hooked and encourage people to support this project as they work to bring awareness to the issue of human trafficking.”
