"The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is proud to welcome a slate of accomplished artists to join us at the Annual Grants Banquet," said HFPA President Meher Tatna. "From the very beginning, giving back has been a mission of the HFPA, and we look forward to continuing this tradition."

For more than 25 years, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group most well-known for producing the Golden Globe Awards, has donated over $30 million to entertainment related charities, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts. Licensing fees obtained from the Awards show has allowed the HFPA to support over 60 nonprofits focused on education in film and television, film preservation, journalistic organizations committed to freedom of speech, as well as organizations that support natural disaster relief and other international and humanitarian crises such as the International Rescue Committee (IRC), FilmAid International, The Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation, and Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES).

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was founded in 1943 as the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association (HFCA) by a group of entertainment journalists representing world media in Hollywood, who realized the need to unite and organize to gain the recognition and access to studios and talent accorded to the domestic press. All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of "Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race." A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. This year marked the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world's most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $30 million to entertainment-related charities, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts over the last 25 years.
