Funding Information

A documentary series of this scope has never been produced on the history of women’s basketball and traditional sources of funding have not been committed for this type of project.

So, it will take a grassroots effort like only women’s sports advocates can generate. Join our team by making a contribution, sharing a story or purchasing something from our store.

Preserve the legacy of those that built college women’s basketball while no one was watching.

Benefits

  • You will help preserve history and empower the production of this essential documentary series in a visually stunning, powerfully written, format.
  • All contributions are tax-deductible. This is a non-profit endeavor through the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation and Do Good Productions.

Testimonials

Docuseries Partnerships – Phase Three

All contributions are tax-deductible! Any amount is appreciated and put directly toward preserving and sharing the stories of the legends of women’s basketball. Phase 1 contributions allowed us to conduct 105+ interviews and Phase 2 empowered us to produce a sneak preview of all ten episodes.

Join the team to help finish production of this groundbreaking multi-episode documentary series.

Three of the 10 episodes are now sponsored!
