WeDidIt is now Allyra

Allyra – Film Fundraising Platform

Exclusively For Our Fiscally Sponsored Filmmakers

From the Heart Productions has partnered with Allyra (formerly WeDidIt) to create a new film fundraising platform designed to make it easier for our fiscally sponsored filmmakers to raise money.  

As a non-profit dedicated to helping indie filmmakers fund their films, we’ve always been obsessed with finding new ways to help them reach their funding goals.  From the Heart Productions pioneered film crowdfunding with Indiegogo. We developed a fundraising platform with Network for Good.  We expanded our fiscal sponsorship program to include education as well as free classes on film funding.  

From the Heart Productions is the first to offer the Allyra platform for fundraising for both Narrative Features, Documentaries, Short Films, and Web Series.

Advantages of Using Allyra

It gives fiscally sponsored filmmakers incredible fundraising tools that are not available together in other platforms. 
  • Customizable Campaigns – Easily display your campaign goal, video call-to-action, amount raised, and promotional content all from one page.
  • Amazing Donation Pages – The donation pages are scientifically designed to increase conversions. Capture donations faster and easier by minimizing the amount of time it takes your donors to check out.  Acknowledge donations by automatically sending them a tax receipt.
  • Donors Can Cover Fees – When donors make a donation, donors are asked to cover the credit card fees.  Over 50% do that which reduces your fees. 
  • Peer-to-Peer Fundraising – Let your supporters, friends, and family fundraise for you. They can easily create their own personalized fundraising campaign and share it with their friends and family. Peer-to-peer campaigns help you raise more money and reach new supporters without any extra staff. Having friends and family sending your info to their contacts to donate to your project is a great way to increase your database as well!
  • Simple Ticketing & Events – Promote your beautifully designed event pages. Whether you sell tickets or provide free attendance, you can create and manage your events from a simple-to-use interface.  This is much cheaper than using an online portal, which would require you to pay them for their service and us too.
  • Text-to-Donate Campaigns – Easily build and launch customizable SMS campaigns. Text-to-donate allows your donors to give from anywhere, whether they’re at your events or on the go! You can incorporate text-to-donate in your next fundraising campaign within minutes. (additional fees apply)
  • Perks for your Crowdfunding Campaigns – You can give your donors rewards for donations just like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and Seed&Spark. This means you don’t need to use their platforms. You will pay less and have tax deductions for your donors. You can do anything those other crowdfunding platforms can do and more!
  • Integrated Donor Research – Allyra Insights provides qualitative donor research. Our platform automatically researches every one of your donors who gives through the platform. It can help you uncover a donor’s bio, job title, company, social media presence, and much more. This is a wonderful way to find which of your donors could become a major donor!

Allyra Fiscal Sponsorship Fees

The fee to use Allyra is 7% which includes fiscal sponsorship fee, credit card fee, and the Allyra platform fee.
When donating, donors have option to cover the credit card fees.  Over 50% take advantage of that.
