REEL GRRLS NEEDS GEAR,
REEL GRRLS NEEDS YOU.
February is a "slow" time for Reel Grrls; July is busy!
In February 2013 alone, our cameras, laptops, and other professional digital video equipment were used 1,620 hours!
Enrollment in our Summer Programs is sky-high.
Our Apprenticeship Program, where our advanced students learn to tell client stories, is at capacity.
Reel Grrls Productions, where young women develop advanced skills on crews supervised by professional mentors, has several new client contracts.
Loan requests are through the roof for our Community Equipment Loan Program – in which mentors, girls in our programs, and others can borrow Reel Grrls gear to create their own independent projects.
All this success creates increased demand on our limited digital camera library. We need your help to keep Reel Grrls state-of-the-art.
Reel Grrls is growing and expanding, serving more young women than ever before. We ask you to consider a donation of at least $50 towards our goal of $10,000.These funds will address Reel Grrls' urgent need for industry-standard equipment and technology, and will allow Reel Grrls to offer access to these professional tools to more girls. All Reel Grrls programs are offered on a pay-what-you-can basis, and 70% of participants receive some form of scholarship.
