How a Non-Profit Dedicated Itself to Telling Cabrini’s Story
When Executive Producer Eustace Wolfington signed on to make a movie about the life of Francesca Cabrini, he had one requirement: net revenues must benefit charity. Here’s how the film intends to carry on Mother Cabrini’s legacy.
What percentage of the production company’s revenue goes to charity?
100% of the production company’s net revenue is donated to charity. This specifically refers to the production company’s share after deductions for exhibitors and distributors, including Angel Studios.
Which charities do the film’s proceeds go to?
100% of the production company’s net revenue will be redistributed to 501(c)(3)s recognized by the IRS. One such charity is the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Mother Cabrini’s order).
Who are the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus?
The Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart are bearers of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini’s legacy, serving those in need through works of healing, teaching, caring and giving – particularly addressing the needs and realities of women, children, frail elders and immigrants.
Today, the Missionary Sisters and their lay collaborators are active in 16 countries and on six continents. We are blessed with a special unity of spirit which binds us together in a common mission: to be “bearers of the love of Christ to the world.”
What is Lodigiano Film Development, Inc.?
Lodigiano Film Development, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) public charity started by Executive Producer Eustace Wolfington to create a film that will hopefully produce a revenue stream aimed to continue sharing Mother Cabrini’s work with the world.
What are the donations used for?
Donations to both Lodigiano Film Development, Inc. and the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus aim to expand the mission Mother Cabrini started over 100 years ago, providing service to vulnerable populations worldwide.
Is Angel Studios as the distributor donating any of their net revenue to charity?
Angel Studios is a for-profit company who takes their share of film revenue to reinvest into the company so they can continue fulfilling their mission to create stories that amplify light.
