Alumni Matching Challenge Needs You! – American Film Institute


Alumni Matching Challenge Needs You!

A very generous AFI alumnus has stepped forward to issue a challenge to raise $25,000 from AFI alumni by December 31. If we are successful in this Alumni Scholarship Challenge, this anonymous donor will match those gifts dollar for dollar!

By donating to the Challenge, you will be making a difference for people like alumni Ruby Mateo.

“Getting a scholarship to attend AFI afforded me the opportunity to live out my dream. Coming from an underserved community, I never thought I would be able to attend this prestigious institution. It didn’t occur to me that someone would believe in me enough to let me contribute my stories.

Thanks to a generous donor, I received a scholarship that opened the doors to pursue my dream of being a storyteller. I decided when I got that scholarship I would do my best to pay it forward. Today I am working in production, and I have donated to the AFI Alumni Scholarship Challenge because I know the firsthand difference it can make!” – Ruby Mateo, Class of 2018

This year we have enrolled filmmakers from varied backgrounds, many of whom would not be here if not for scholarship funding. To create opportunities for these promising filmmakers, please donate $50, $250, $500 or more if you can.  Big or small, every gift will have double the impact.

Let’s give the next generation of filmmakers the opportunity to set their dreams in motion. Donate now.
