The Lunation Grant

Donating Film Production Services to Fight the Climate Crisis

Applications Open

We’re a film production company. This is a grant for our services, free or heavily discounted, to non-profits who are fighting the climate crisis and its effects.

The climate crisis is the greatest existential threat to our species. In the coming decades, it will cause more destruction, death, and displacement than any other force on Earth. But you know that. As filmmakers, we recognize the power of storytelling to educate the public and provoke action. Offering free media services to organizations on the front lines is the best way we can help.

Criteria

  • Your organization must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
  • Must be based in the United States.
  • Ideally, you’re registered to be a recipient of 1% for the Planet donations. We can recommend you if you’re not. Learn more.

Um, yeah, we actually need your help. The more help we get, the more grants we can award. No matter how little time you have to contribute, it’s an amazing way to put your skillset to saving the world. Please reach out to our main email, [email protected]

Right now we rely on awesome filmmakers donating their time and whatever money we can, but it’d be awesome if you could donate to a fund. We aren’t currently a non-profit, but we are considering it. If you’re interested in donating to fund our film production grants, please reach out and we’ll see what we can do. It may involve donating directly to the organizations we’re working with.

We’re a member of 1% for the Planet, meaning we donate 1% of our revenue to qualified environmental non-profits. That means even our commercial clients are helping the cause, like it or not! Part of that committed contribution can be in the form of free services, which helped give birth to this program. We also aim to reduce our production footprint as much as possible.
