Did you know that approximately one-third of VC’s budget comes from private individual contributions? VC is a non-profit organization that operates on a balanced budget, so the support that we receive from the community directly affects how many programs we can offer, and the breadth and scope of our programs.
A gift to VC is 100% tax deductible, and supports VC's programs, such as: Preservation, Media Education, Armed With a Camera Fellowship, and Presentation. Our donors are a special group of individuals known as the VC Stakeholders. Visual Communications relies on the growing support of the VC Stakeholders each year to keep our programs thriving and available in Los Angeles. Your generous gifts helps us to meet today's demands, and also ensures a promising and exciting future for Asian American media.
