    WHO WE ARE

    Female Artistic & Commercial Entrepreneur Support, Inc. (FACES) is a not-for-profit organization that aims to increase the number of female voices in film, TV and digital media. It seeks to do so by helping women break into and develop successful careers in those industries. FACES encourages aspiring female artists and entertainment professionals to approach their careers like small businesses, using the entrepreneurial skills learned through training and guidance in the form of panel discussions, workshops, scholarships, real-world production experience, and personal 24/7 mentorship. 

    On a broader scale, FACES hopes that the resulting increase in female influence at all levels of the entertainment industry will lead to the general public’s greater exposure to more diverse and authentic female perspectives. This, in turn, will heighten the potential for awareness, empathy, and understanding in regards to gender equality and female empowerment.

    Check out more information about our organization at FemaleACEs.org. We are also on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

    HOW YOU CAN HELP

    We are very passionate about our mission to help women begin and maintain successful careers in the entertainment industry. The disproportionately low number of women working behind the camera in film,TV, and digital media not only represents an alarming gap in gender parity for women both currently working in the industry and those still trying to break in, but also severely limits the strength of the collective female voice that can serve to empower the youngest females in our society for generations to come.

    As the creators of a newly established not-for-profit entity, it is critically important to all of us (the faces behind FACES if you will) that we create an organization that is sustainable in every way. Why? Because we’re fully committed to our mission for the long haul.

    This means setting up every aspect of the organization as professionally as possible from the very beginning. The downside of this, of course, is the upfront costs associated with this undertaking. This is why we need your help. The purpose of this campaign is to raise the funds that have been and continue to be required to not only officially launch our organization, but to allow for FACES to hit the ground running and keep up momentum in working toward our ultimate goal: to grow and support a more diverse and authentic female voice in film, television, and digital media.

    Your donations will go toward necessary startup expenses, such as:
    • Legal & Accounting fees,
    • Incorporation costs/dues,
    • Insurance costs,
    • Other startup costs (website creation and maintenance, brand development, office equipment, among others)

    We want to be able to legitimize FACES as a fully-functioning, successful non-profit organization which will have long-lasting, positive effects in the world of entertainment as well as in society in general. With each donation that is made, our chances of achieving this goal grow stronger.

    Please consider giving whatever you can to help us get FACES off the ground and powering forward! Please join us, and together we will dance on the shards of broken glass ceilings.
