Corporate, Matching, and In-Kind Giving


Corporate Support

Contributions from corporations and businesses can provide critical support to Screenwriters Colony and its efforts to nurture writers for the screen who show exceptional talent and promise. SWC is open to relationships with global and local business leaders who recognize the value of financing our mission to support the most powerful storytellers of our time. We engage with companies in the entertainment industry as well as local businesses in LA, NYC, Nantucket, and Nosara Costa Rica. There are also opportunities to support our work by participating in SWC’s annual Summer Soiree as well as other networking events throughout the year.

Matching Gifts

Screenwriters Colony is delighted to accept matching gifts from your company. If your employer has a matching gifts program, your gift could be doubled. Please include a matching gift form (generally available through your employer’s human resources department) when making your donation online or by mail.

In-kind Gifts

Screenwriters Colony welcomes gifts of equipment, products, and other items that would be useful to our organization and artists during their residency programs. For SWC to provide an acknowledgement for tax purposes, the donor must provide a written valuation for in-kind gifts valued at $250 or more.
