Soul of America has 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Our Mission is to Uncover and Document the Soul of America on Film. So that we might come to truly know each other from beyond our opinions. Our Vision is that this Film Series of the Interior World of the American People is used widely and freely in schools, organizations, places of worship, government, families and other places in which lives are experienced. And that the Series makes a significant contribution in bringing people across the many divides closer together by inspiring a change in the way we see and act towards each other.
Below are the ways in which you can help us deliver on our mission, as we set off on this journey. As a non profit we count on viewer/community and patron participation. We have a very real cost of production and distribution. Donors receive extra access (see below).
