So far, 2015 has been an amazing year. With your continued generous support, we can make this, our 25th Anniversary Year even better.

In February, we selected the 2015 Alexia Grant winners. We are able to fund important projects tackling such themes as cruelty to animals in the fashion industry, poverty and struggle in the African-American Community, and child labor and unsafe labor practices in Bangladesh. Mary F. Calvert, the 2014 Women’s Initiative Grant Winner, continues her powerful reporting on homeless women military veterans.

this day of immersive learning will empower many more photographers and stir even more vital social change

This fall, the Alexia Foundation is starting an important new initiative to further the ability of photojournalists to help bring important issues to the forefront. We want everyone creating important, moving work on today’s most important social issues to be able to best use their photography to drive change.

We are creating the first of many one-day workshops entitled, Photography: Agent for Change. With a variety of world-renowned experts, including grantees Ami Vitale and Tim Matsui, National Geographic’s Whitney Johnson, Getty Images’ Aidan Sullivan, ICP’s Fred Ritchin and many others, we will help attendees understand how to make the greatest possible impact with their work. We are certain this day of immersive learning will empower many more photographers and stir even more vital social change.

We need your help to make this initiative a success. Can you help us? Will you become an official sponsor of the 2015 Photography: Agent for Change Workshop?

You can make it happen.
