Fledgling supported film projects and select field building efforts designed to deepen and advance the impact of documentary film. We are no longer accepting funding proposals for media projects. You can learn more about our past grantees below.
“By completely re-imagining the relationship of philanthropist and grantee, The Fledgling Fund has invested in a generation of filmmakers to think more boldly about the impact of their stories in the world. Fledgling Fund grants are designed to connect, amplify and leverage the power of stories — and no funder is as committed to the process as Fledgling. They create innovative resources to help their grantees do better, provide breakthrough opportunities for professional and personal development, and most of all, they are a full-on partner in the long road of the journey.”
