THE EOYM ANNUAL FREE VIDEO GRANT

NOW CLOSED  

(2020 APPLICATION WINDOW: Postponed due to Corona Virus)

We regret to inform our community that Eyes On Your Mission has postponed its annual free video production grant until late 2020 or early 2021 due to all the uncertainty related to the Corona Virus and what we’ll be able to film in person (like we normally do for this grant). We are redirecting our nonprofit’s resources towards our new Filmmaking For Good platform, educational coursework that can be done with students 100% virtually. If you need a powerful online curriculum for your students, learn more about our online training intensive that empowers educators to teach their students to produce social justice videos and user-friendly digital content.

FOR NONPROFITS WITH SMALL BUDGETS: Consider a matching grant through our sister company, Two Parrot Productions, which has been donating video production services to nonprofits, charities, causes and foundations since its inception in 2001. www.TwoParrot.com/grants

Though currently closed for applications, the annual Eyes On Your Mission Free Video Grant provides nonprofits with a free video production and visual storytelling promotional package including; communications strategy, videos, still photos and social media content.

Grants have been awarded to selected nonprofits that exhibit innovation, creativity and future-thinking. The grant is international, multi-lingual and considers a diverse range of causes and organizations. We are headquartered in Miami and Chicago, however, any NGO globally is eligible and invited to apply. We encourage previous applicants to apply again with fresh updated ideas.

RECENT GRANT RECIPIENTS: Child Rescue Coalition receives top honors for its work to protect children from online predators with cutting edge software. Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida, Urgent, Inc, and the YWCA of Greater Miami-Dade will also all be receiving free services, which will coincide with EOYM’s “Filmmaking For Good” Virtual Training Intensive, which those three nonprofits will be facilitating directly with their young people. Matching grant winners include HopeWins7.org, the Bold Beauty Project and Boys & Girls Club, Martin County.
