THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
FOCUS 2018 - Free Spirit Media's annual fundraiser was truly a night to remember. We'd like to thank all of our sponsors, our dedicated board, our brilliant staff, our wonderful volunteers, and our community of supporters for showing up, sharing our work, and investing in our vision.
With 300 attendees, 44 Host and Friend Committee members, and 39 sponsors, this year's FOCUS brought in over $100,000 for Free Spirit Media's media production, digital storytelling and community journalism programs. THANK YOU for being part of the#FSMfam.

DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT WITH OUR DONATION MARCHING CHALLENGE!
We are excited to share that for the month of June (starting June 1st, and ending on the last day of our fiscal year, June 30th, 2018), all new and increased individual donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 --but we need to get to $10,000 for this generous anonymous gift to be fulfilled. Please contribute today and tell your friends!
Your support adds momentum to our movement of access and opportunity. This summer, Free Spirit Media will employ over 120 teens and young adults in seven innovative media production programs (from HoopsHIGH, to The Real Chi, to FSM News) and placements at 40 creative industry partner jobs.
Please help FSM engage with Chicago's creative youth from communities of color to transform media and society. This is a crucial time to change narratives and activate an inclusive economy!
