With Your Help

Your support makes telling important stories possible.

With your help, NW Documentary provides free equipment grants, affordable workshops and events, and a virtual workspace and community clubhouse for hobbyists and professional filmmakers.


Your donation is an investment in a stronger, more connected community.

Every story creates new human connections, shaping our culture and our lives. Your support helps NW Documentary create a story-rich region with its own unique and independent character.

Since 2003, NW Documentary has been making documentary filmmaking accessible to anyone with a story to tell. Our workshops support filmmakers of all skill levels. Our community sustains artistic growth. What starts as a hobby becomes a serious tool for civic engagement and personal empowerment.

We’ve seen high school students go from summer workshops to making films for local nonprofits. We’ve seen first time filmmakers inspire collaborative filmmaking projects that sell out theaters all over town. We’ve seen filmmaking projects give people a reason to keep living. We’ve seen storytelling help people heal and recover.

Stories link the past to the future, and as the northwest grows and changes, we all have the opportunity and responsibility to help determine its character. Community support for NW Documentary empowers storytellers to share their vision & empowers you to help shape the culture of the northwest.

Please consider giving a gift today and help make the northwest a hub for stories and the powerful actions they inspire.
