Join us in supporting the engaged exchange of ideas rooted in history. Support from corporations, individuals, and foundations, make our work possible.
Gifts can be earmarked for particular film projects, and we welcome general operating support to ensure that all the aspects of content creation, outreach, and impact, are realized. All gifts are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Multimedia Screening Guides and Lesson Plans support innovative and engaging classroom instruction by using the art and power of visual storytelling to enliven coursework in civics, history, government, social justice. History becomes so much more than a fact- or chronology-based endeavor because people and their stories provide a meaningful entryway to content. The materials provide educators and screening hosts with background infromation, facilitation strategies, discussion questions, and activities.
Outreach and Engagement
We believe the films and the ideas they present have their greatest impact in the context of a shared experience of a screening room, classroom, or library. KFF’s educational resources are designed for turning a screening into a lively debate, conversation, and ultimately, action. KFF partners with impact agencies to produce screening tours and campaigns.
The Interview Archive includes hundreds of hours of interviews with iconic political figures, artists, activists, and eyewitness accounts of historical movements, as well as the full transcripts. The Archives will expand into an open collection of primary source materials such as downloadable photographs, newsreel, and public domain footage. All of these resources are free and open to the public on the KFF website.
KFF supports educators with training, workshops, and support in integrating nonfiction film and primary source materials effectively in the classroom, as well as pedagogical approaches to teaching about civil rights and social justice. Partners include national professional organizations, school districts, and affinity groups.
