Donate to KITS Today

Imagine for a moment that you were suddenly rendered mute…

Think of how would it feel to be involuntarily silenced by circumstances over which you have no control. This is reality of the more than 25,000 kids in LA County’s foster care system. 

You can give them back their voices.

When you support KITS with your tax-deductible contribution, you enable us to continue bringing our unique training program to youth impacted by foster care.

Value Statement: Kids In The Spotlight (KITS) does what no other organization does, inspiring opportunity and healing through film, while offering wraparound services and opportunities for transitional age youth to earn as they learn. With tens of thousands of L.A.’s youth impacted by foster care facing few opportunities, KITS transforms the potential hopeless into a credit to themselves and their communities.

Movie Making That Makes Impact

Behind every success story from KITS alums or a new project to expand our operations are the people and organizations like you who make it happen. You can be confident that every one of your contributions makes a real impact – one that you can see in each film and youth who comes through our program.

Building Professional Experiences

Your support goes toward Hollywood-grade instruction, equipment and production value that give life and legacy to the stories of the youth who write them. It’s what draws in participants and sets them up for tomorrow. KITS gives them the experiences and the portfolio to break into the world of filmmaking with confidence and recast their futures.

Creating a Safe Space to Heal

KITS is the only organization of its kind, focused on inspiring L.A.’s foster youth through film. We help direct their passion into a healthy outlet for expressing themselves, telling their stories on their terms and turning it into something beautiful. You can be a part of a young person’s journey to self-discovery and healing.

Helping Better Our Community

When you support KITS, you support Los Angeles County by shaping the next generation. Our people come from the same lived experience as the system-impacted youth we guide toward being valued members of the community. Help us break the cycle of hardship while filling a diverse pipeline of talent into our city’s creative economy.
