Heard hands

Promoting the kind in humankind.

PEPSTAR is a non-profit that supports filmmakers, artists, educators and peace builders who create uplifting content that inspires hearts and minds and promotes peace.
We offer fiscal sponsorship that enables these important projects to raise tax deductible donations AND retain 100 % ownership.
Whether you are a creator or a supporter, we invite you to join us as we educate, elevate and entertain for the greater good.

how it works

We believe it is in the best interests of humankind to help peace artists succeed, because every time their important voice is heard, they will be inspiring the next generation.

To assist them, we have created a straightforward, three-step program. On this rewarding journey, artists will receive guidance on creative execution, emotional impact, viral potential and social activism.


Up-and-coming filmmaker, artist, educator or organization completes a fiscal sponsorship application outlining their vision for their peace entertainment project.  For a limited time, we are waiving our application fee.


The PEPSTAR Board reviews and votes on the application.


Upon approval to our program, the applicant can now become an official member for 25 dollars a month and immediately begin soliciting tax deductible donations and grants without having to create their own 501(c)(3) organization. All donations towards peace entertainment projects are processed by PEPSTAR, which will provide tax receipts to the donors. Upon completion, the PEPSTAR member retains 100 percent ownership of their project. In addition, their work will be honored and promoted on the PEPSTAR platform as part of our mission to educate and elevate as we entertain for the greater good. When you make it big here, you make the world a better place.

Transformational entertainment projects which challenge and uplift humankind are more difficult to fund than traditional, commercial projects.

This has slowed human progress.

Your kind, tax deductible donation to PEPSTAR enables us to offer up and coming filmmakers,  artists, educators and peace builders an opportunity to make a positive impact.

Because of your generosity, a new generation of important voices can be heard.
