The Fledgling Fund
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Fund supports innovative media projects that can play critical roles in igniting social change. The Fund supports media projects that are timely, tell compelling and important stories, represent a unique perspective or an intriguing solution to an entrenched social problem, and have strong potential as a vehicle for social change. Priority is also given to media projects that demonstrate how films coupled with well-structured and measurable outreach and audience engagement campaigns can raise awareness about complex social issues as well as encouraging dialogue, sharing possible solutions, and moving people to action. Also of interest are media projects that encourage the innovative use of new media, such as Web 2.0 strategies, and short form videos, to engage new audiences around important social issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, girls’ empowerment and women’s leadership; health and wellness; and systemic poverty. The Fund considers requests for creative media projects in two funding cycles each year. Applications must be submitted online. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
