Support Provided

Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film

Supports the completion of original documentaries that explore the Jewish experience in all its complexity. The fund was created with a lead grant from Steven Spielberg’s Righteous Persons Foundation and sustained over 10 years with major support from the Charles H. Revson Foundation. The priority of the fund is to support projects that address significant subjects; offer fresh, challenging perspectives; engage audiences across cultural lines; and expand the understanding of Jewish experiences.

In the past, grants have generally ranged in size from $15,000 to $35,000.

Please note that the Foundation does not fund individual projects outside of our established programs.
