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 the field in three ways:
- As a learning hub
We provide valuable information about the state of media-related funding, impact metrics and policy. We highlight substantive projects that demonstrate the power of media in the public interest, and how funders are using storytelling to advance their missions.
- As a resource for philanthropic partnership
By taking a broad view across the field of media funding to include many different types of platforms, issues and philanthropic goals, we are uniquely able to connect funders and media makers who might not otherwise cross paths.
- As a convener to advance media and technology efforts within philanthropy
Online and in-person, we gather foundation leaders and visionaries in order to support learning and spark innovative collaborations.
A note on 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.
