Funding Sources

Funding Sources:

Just Vision receives funding from more than 300 individuals and family foundations, primarily but not exclusively from across North America, and from private and public foundations. We also receive in-kind donations, including legal, printing, sound mixing and research services. Finally, we receive licensing fees for film broadcasts, DVD sales and screening fees. Our donor base reflects a broad constituency rather than a single ethnic or religious group. We continue to reach out to secular, Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities. We retain full editorial control of our content, and do not accept any funding that would require us to cede editorial control of our documentary film or educational materials.
In October 2009 we also received funds from USAID to support the relaunch of our website, the creation of video portraits and short films (upcoming) and media and community outreach in the Middle East that does not relate to our feature documentary film, Budrus. Given the urgency of the issue and its global relevance, as well as our steady growth over the last five years, we are confident that we will continue to garner ongoing and new sources of support.[4]
