Jonathan Logan Family Foundation: Grants for Film

OVERVIEW: The Jonathan Logan Family Foundation seeks documentary filmmakers and projects focusing on a variety of social justice causes.

IP TAKE: This foundation does not strictly limit its film grantmaking to documentaries. It also supports other mediums including podcasts.

PROFILE: In November 2016, Daniel and Jonathan Logan officially resigned as directors of the Reva and David Logan Foundation. Daniel Logan established his own nonprofit, the Revada Foundation and Jonathan did the same, founding the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation. Although the Reva and David Logan Foundation fully funded Jonathan’s newly formed nonprofit, it is a separate and independent entity.

The Logan Family foundation “[s]upports organizations that advance social justice by promoting world-changing work in investigative journalism, the arts, the environment, education, equity and inclusion, and documentary film.”

The foundation’s tax filings indicate that past grant awards have ranged in amount from $500 to $50,000. Past documentary film grantees include James LeBrecht and Nicole Newnham for their documentary film Crip Camp and Abby Ginzberg for her film And Then They Came for Us.  To learn more about the type of work Logan supports, explore its grantees list.

Documentarians working on social, political, health, environmental, human rights and justice issues can explore the Logan Nonfiction Program at the Cary Institute for Global Good. The program focuses on “[l]ongform nonfiction about the most pressing issues of the day and then helping to disseminate it on a variety of media platforms to the widest possible audience.”

The Jonathan Logan Family Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
