The Redford Center Introduces Impact Grants as Part of its Grantmaking Strategy
As part of The Redford Center's investments in storytelling strategies that respond to the urgency of today’s crises, the center introduced a new category of impact grants as part of their expanded grantmaking strategy.
For the first time, The Redford Center is awarding impact campaign funding as part of an expanded grantmaking strategy. This additional commitment supports completed films in their efforts to inspire public dialogue and mobilize action around specific issues related to environmental justice. Impact campaign grants will be used to move audiences from awareness to action through initiatives such as educational screenings and community partnerships.
Impact campaign funds are going to existing grantees who previously received production grants and completed their films in year-one and the center expects impact campaign grants will be continued in the next cohort’s offerings.
