Support the Film Fund for Underrepresented Students to make an impact at Wesleyan University today and tomorrow!

Opportunities are not equal. According to the 2020 Hollywood Diversity Report, women and people of color “continue to be severely underrepresented among the artists who tell the stories and breathe life into the characters with which America’s increasingly diverse audiences engage. Too often, privilege is the prerequisite to a career. Breaking into the industry requires talent, work and access to resources that are blocked by systemic racism.

Your gift to the Film Fund will support the real and material needs of underrepresented students in filmmaking and television and provide financial assistance for things like senior thesis development, career development opportunities, travel costs for interviews or internships, and grants to help senior break into the industry post-graduation.

Make your gift today and if we reach 1,000 gifts by June 30, Trustee Susannah Gray ’82 will make a $1 million gift to Wesleyan!
