Brand Foundation Alliance

Our Members


BFA Members consist of some of the leading Brands and Foundations supporting media for change and impact. BFA Members consist of two groups - full members and affiliates. 

Full membership is open to any foundation or corporation that funds film, video and other media (from audio to VR and everything in-between). 

Affiliate membership is open to others who overlap with this space - Ad agencies; producers; production companies; other funders of media; platforms; consultants who work in this space. 

Not sure if you are eligible? Just drop us a note. 

Why two types of membership? We want to welcome everyone who is working in this space, but sometimes foundations and brands want to be able to talk and share best practices without being pitched, or worrying they will send the wrong message to their colleagues. We believe this two tier system best allows open collaboration and more private conversations when needed.
