We are delighted to announce that Director, Sally McLean, on behalf of Franz Stampfl: The Man Behind the Miracle Milehas been approved to be officially listed on the AbaF Australia Cultural Fund (ACF) register for fundraising purposes for the project.

What does this mean?

Essentially, this means that we can now raise money for the project via the ACF within Australia via donations from individuals and companies – AND – we can therefore offer you a tax deduction for your donation of $2 (two dollars) or more!

We have already raised $10,000 via the AbaF back in 2007, thanks to the wonderful generosity of a very supportive individual – which has enabled us to get the project to it’s current position – ie. ready to start shooting and editing. And so now the next stage begins …

So, how does this all work and who are the AbaF Australia Cultural Fund anyway?

The AbaF (Australian Business Arts Foundation) is a national organisation which connects the arts, business and donors. They work with businesses large and small, arts organisations of all types, individual artists, trusts and foundations. They provide advice, professional development, volunteering and networking opportunities.

The Australia Cultural Fund (ACF) is the AbaF’s free arts donation service and was established to encourage people to donate to the arts and to enable artists, including filmmakers, to benefit from this generosity. Artists and arts organisations can register to use the service which enables their donors to make tax deductible donations to the fund*.

Donations are paid in full as grants once approved by the AbaF Board. A total of more than $5 million has been donated to the arts through AbaF.

Artists and arts organisations apply to the Fund for consideration to be registered with the AbaF Australia Cultural Fund.  Once approved, they are listed on the ACF website and provided with both an online and PDF form for use to request donations for their project.

Sally McLean has been listed as an individual artist (filmmaker) for the project on the AbaF Australia Cultural Fund register.  All monies raised via the AbaF will go directly to the project.
