The Foundation does not accept unsolicited screenplays, treatments or pitch letters. For consideration of your screenplay or pitch idea, you may contact the individual organizations whose programs we support directly.
Interested grantseekers with a relevant project idea should email a one page letter of inquiry to Program Director Doron Weber. Telephone inquiries are not accepted. Before submitting a letter of inquiry, please review the Foundation's guidelines on what we do not fund.
