As a small foundation, we understand that we can’t do all that we want to do on our own. To that end we work with other funders – both individual and institutional – to deepen and extend our work.


Fledgling is proud to be a founding member of Impact Partners, an organization committed to financing independent documentary cinema that addresses pressing social issues.  Through Impact Partners we invest in a small number of film projects each year. This funding is distinct from our grant program and we are not involved in the initial review process.  All inquiries are handled through the Impact Partners review process.  We are proud to have supported the following projects through Impact Partners.


We are grateful to the Ford Foundation, Dobkin Family Foundation, Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Neda Nobari Foundation and several anonymous funding partners who have generously supported our work and the work of our grantees in different ways.  For more information on partnering with us contact Sheila Leddy.
