COVID-19 has had a catastrophic effect on our local and global communities. The need to connect, to support our most underserved neighbors, and champion emerging talent, has never been stronger.
That is why BAFTA LA is committed to continuing our Access for All programs, but we need help.
Access for All is a series of programs for new and emerging talent that includes education, mentorship, financial aid, and more. We provide a foot in the door and pathway to continued success for talented individuals, breaking down barriers of background, demographics, and personal circumstance. Visit our website to find out more about the individual programs.
Through Access for All, we have been helping and inspiring emerging talent to build a career in our industries here in Los Angeles for over 25 years. In the past 5 weeks, we have been able to move most of our programs onto virtual platforms, enabling us to continue our work.
Priorities of support must remain with the health and wellbeing of our neighbors, and in support for our frontline workers, healthcare professionals, and those most severely directly impacted by Covid-19.
However, the stark reality, is that the financial impact of Covid-19 on nonprofit organizations like ours, puts our vital programs and support networks at risk.
Your support to reach our fundraising target of XXX will keep our Access for All programs going for the next XX months, allowing us to continue to provide opportunities for new and emerging talent throughout and beyond the chaos of the current circumstances.
In the midst of the global pandemic, BAFTA remains committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive industry. To do this, we must remain connected and do what we can to support our community - now, more than ever.
We hope you'll choose to be part of that story.
