| As documentary
filmmakers and historians, we take great joy in shaping and distributing
stories that will make a difference to society. In the case of the story
of Pan Am, we believe that what the company and its people accomplished
was tremendously important, not only for commercial aviation, but for
making the 20th century the "American Century." The fact that
this story is still little known to the majority of Americans, and especially
young Americans, makes it even more critical to tell now.
But bringing all this to the screen and to schools around the country is an expensive process. That's why we need your help. With many traditional sources of funding drying up, individuals and corporations have often come to the rescue of documentary projects like this. We hope that you will share our excitement about the story, the importance of preserving Pan Am's place in history, and the scope and quality of our project.
If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to the Pan Am Documentary Project, here is the process for making a contribution:
*The Pan Am Documentary Project is sponsored by Documentary Alliance, Inc. a Houston-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating the cultural amnesia that is robbing Americans of the valuable lessons of the past. This is accomplished by using film, video and multimedia to fashion thoughtful and thought provoking stories about history, culture, and science. By preserving and presenting these ideas, Documentary Alliance hopes to inform, inspire, and empower Americans to fashion a better tomorrow.
Documentary Alliance programs will be distributed to the American public on television, home video, the Internet, in schools, and by sharing copies with other nonprofit organizations. Our primary venue is PBS, a forum with a primetime national audience of over 150 million viewers. For more information, please visit the Documentary Alliance Website.
