The Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), as a leading charitable organization of the entertainment industry, harnesses the collective power of the entire industry to raise awareness and funds for critical health, educational and social issues in order to make a positive impact in our community and throughout the nation.

Thanks to the commitment of an extraordinary number of people and companies, EIF is able to champion a wide variety of worthy causes. EIF's national initiatives raise awareness and crucial funds to address leading health and social issues:

The Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) movement raises funds to hasten the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. Founded in May, 2008, by a group of media, entertainment and philanthropic leaders whose lives have been affected by cancer in significant ways, SU2C has raised more than $100 million, and provided funding to five Dream Teams comprised of over 200 exemplary scientists whose projects aim to produce results benefiting patients within the grants' three-year term, as well as 13 young investigators whose innovative, "high risk/high reward" research would not likely receive funding from conventional sources. The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is Stand Up To Cancer's partner, and is responsible for administering the grants, and -- in conjunction with the SU2C Scientific Advisory Committee, led by Nobel laureate Phillip A. Sharp, Ph.D., Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and David H. Koch Institute at MIT -- providing scientific oversight. For more information, visit www.standup2cancer.org.

EIF has mobilized the entire entertainment community around a multi- year service initiative, called iParticipate, designed to encourage more Americans to volunteer and serve in their communities. As part of its launch, the four major broadcast networks - ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC - and other networks and cable channels, participated in an unprecedented, week-long television event from Oct 19-25, 2009, with more than 100 shows devoting programming, story lines and PSAs focused on volunteerism. As part of this groundbreaking effort, EIF launched a dedicated website to make it easier than ever before for millions of Americans to search for volunteer opportunities in their local communities. In addition to generating heightened awareness about the value of community service, EIF has awarded capacity-building grants to City Year Los Angeles, Regents of UCLA, EnCorps, The LEAGUE and ServiceNation.
