Gail Evenari founded Maiden Voyage Productions (MVP) in 1994, as a California nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation. Since its inception, MVP has raised approximately $1.75 million in grants from foundations, private donors and other nonprofits. The MVP name was inspired by Evenari’s voyage on a Polynesian sailing canoe that resulted in her producing the award-winning PBS documentary, Wayfinders: A Pacific Odyssey. (Tax ID 94-3191142)
