BeCause Foundation drives social change through the powerful fusion of documentary filmmaking and related strategic programs. BeCause films tell moving stories about individuals, organizations, and communities who, with compassion and determination, are finding innovative solutions to complex social problems. By implementing engagement campaigns and coalition building around the films, BeCause Foundation helps transform such solutions into broad-based movements for social change.
BeCause films showcase the extraordinary compassion, resourcefulness, and dedication of ordinary people and communities: A doctor who treats the homeless in Pittsburgh (One Bridge to the Next); An innovative, multi-disciplinary group of professionals supporting child sexual abuse victims in Chicago (Alone No Love); A remarkable community of refugees from Burma risking their lives to help their own (Crossing Midnight); A small Southern town dealing with rapid and culturally complex demographic change (Welcome to Shelbyville).
BeCause also makes grants to organizations that support the health, education and welfare of children in the U.S. and abroad. At this time, we are not seeking new grantees.
