We've Launched!

October 02, 2014

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Yesterday marked the launch of our campaign on UCLA Spark! 

We are so grateful to everyone who helped kickoff this effort. We would especially like to thank two offline donors for their extraordinary gifts:  

Dr. Robert Singleton

Mr. Ronald Taylor

Thank you again for your support of this campaign and please continue to share our Spark project on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #ChangeTheNarrative


Dr. Darnell Hunt and Dr. Ana-Christina Ramon

We've Reached 25%

October 07, 2014

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thanks to your generosity and commitment to the Hollywood Diversity Report, we have reached over 25% of our goal in less than one week! That's over 40 hours of research funded!

We would like to extend a very special thank you to both Jesse Williams of "Grey's Anatomy” and Franklin Leonard of The Black List for contributing to our project and spreading the word through email and Twitter. We truly appreciate your support!

With 25 days to go, we are working hard to make this a successful campaign. To keep the momentum going, we will continue to reach out to our friends, colleagues, and social media networks and we encourage you to do the same!  

Please continue to spread the word via email and on Twitter and Facebook (and be sure to include the #ChangeTheNarrative hashtag).  

With your help, we can reach - and even surpass - our $10,000 goal.  

Again, we can't thank you enough for investing in our research and helping us #ChangeTheNarrative in Hollywood.

Over $7000 Raised! Only $3000 to go!

October 23, 2014

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we have reached 70% of our $10,000 goal.  Their gift is a testament to the importance of diversity in entertainment and their overall confidence in the Bunche Center and the Hollywood Diversity Report.

We are incredibly grateful. 

With 9 days to go, we now have $3000 left to raise!  Help us reach our goal!

Please continue to share our project via Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ChangetheNarrative as well as with anyone interested in this issue. 

Thank you again for your support!

October 28, 2014

As of today, we have reached 75% of our funding goal.  That is approximately 120 hours of research funded!

To all of our donors - from longtime supporters of the Bunche Center to new friends we have made on Facebook and Twitter - thank you for helping us reach this milestone.  We truly appreciate all of your support. 

With just four days remaining, we have less than $2500 to raise!

This has been a remarkable effort, but it’s not over yet.  We continue to work tirelessly to reach our $10,000 goal and fund our ongoing research on diversity in entertainment.  Please continue to share, tweet, and post about our project using the hashtag #ChangeTheNarrative.  

Let’s change the narrative in Hollywood!

November 03, 2014

Thank you to everyone who made a contribution to the UCLA Ralph J. Bunche Center’s Hollywood Diversity Report.  This has been an amazing campaign for our landmark research effort on race and diversity in entertainment, and we could not have made it this far without the help, support and generosity of all of you – from our $10 donors to our $1000+ donors.  We would especially like to thank one anonymous offline donor who helped us reach this exciting milestone over the weekend with a very generous $500 gift.

We are truly grateful for all of your support.  Your gifts have helped fund approximately 175 hours of research, and we look forward to updating all of you on our research progress in the coming months and sharing our final results.  More importantly, we look forward to changing the narrative around this issue and raising awareness of the importance of diversity in Hollywood.

Stay tuned!
