Media Impact Funders (formerly Grantmakers in Film + Electronic Media) is a network of funders, working broadly on media and technology issues, in order to create social change. We serve as a learning resource for grantmakers interested in using media to further their missions; a catalyst for philanthropic partnership and networking; and a convener to advance media and technology focused philanthropy. Media Impact Funders is an affinity group, with members representing foundations, government agencies, donor affinity groups, philanthropic advisors, and individual donors.
Solicitation and Fundraising: Media Impact Funders works with the broader media field; however, we are not able to provide direct assistance to organizations or individuals seeking funding. We do not assist grantseekers in contacting or soliciting our members. We encourage open sharing of ideas and innovative projects; however MIF events or publications may not be used for fundraising solicitations.
Media Impact Funders is an affinity group of the Council on Foundations.
