Capacity Building FAQ

The mission of Project Twenty1 is to Exhibit, Promote, Inspire and Connect our artists and creatives, and to build their passions into careers. We are committed to hosting programs and events that do all of these things for the foreseeable future.

In support of this mission, we have run programs such as The Philadelphia Film & Animation Festival and the 21-Day Filmmaking Competition on a volunteer-basis for the last eight years. Each year, revenue generated by our programs including team signups, submission fees, and ticket sales result in a combined 8% of our needed operating revenue. Another 7% comes from individual contributions and memberships. The remaining 85% has thus far been contributed by our founders, and our wonderful staff of dedicated volunteers.

After much discussion, the founders, board, and staff of Project Twenty1 feel it is time to take things to the next level. To this end, we are currently fundraising and capacity-building so that the organization can become sustainable long-term.
