Beginning in 2017, Outfest undertook the development of a bold new Strategic Plan in response to the global expansion of production and content platforms; the increasing calls for inclusion from within the Entertainment Industry; and our Nation’s growing disparity across the socio-economic-political landscape. In 2020, it’s time to implement that plan.

The Outfest Empathy Campaign will bring our nearly 40 years of powerful stories and programs, the entertainment community and our most passionate alumni together, as we join forces to reach the millions of Americans that are in desperate need of re-connecting with our community.

Please consider joining our first round of supporters for this ground-breaking and innovative initiative to build Empathy across our Nation. Outfest has set a first-round fundraising goal of $500,000 by 2020. This seed funding will help us build the critical groundwork, acquire the resources and begin blueprinting our new Opportunity, Inclusivity and Visibility programs for their launch in 2020.
