No, Girl Rising is not a 501©(3) non-profit. The company that produced Girl Rising - Ten Times Ten, LLC - is a film production company with a social purpose mission. We funded the production of the film and outreach campaign through the generous support of philanthropists, corporations, foundations and passionate supporters.
Any revenues generated by Girl Rising go back into the project or toward furthering the goals of the campaign.
When we launched the film in 2013, we set up The Girl Rising Fund, to direct donations to girls’ education programs on the ground. The Girl Rising Fund is operated by the Tides Foundation, a 501©(3) non-profit. Donations to the Girl Rising Fund never come to our company, but go directly to the Tides Foundation and are distributed to our original core NGO partners–some of the leading organizations improving the lives of girls around the world.
