Black Tie International:
The Entertainment Industry Foundation

The Entertainment Industry Foundation harnesses the collective power of the industry to raise awareness and fund for critical health, educational and social issues in order to make a positive impact in our community and throughout the nation. People from every facet of the entertainment community – actors and executives; guild and union members; and employees of studios, networks and talent agencies – volunteer their time, talent and services to support our work.

Founded 67 years ago by Samuel Goldwyn and other Hollywood luminaries, EIF has raised millions of dollars for cancer research and prevention; diabetes awareness; education and creative arts; and other social programs.

EIF's CEO Lisa Paulsen was just named one of The Nonprofit times Power & Influence Top 50, celebrating the nonprofit sector's top executives and thinkers for their impact and innovation.

EIF is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that meets all 20 Better Business Bureau standards.





The Entertainment Industry Foundation has mobilized the entertainment community around a groundbreaking initiative designed to inspire a new era of service and volunteerism. This multi-year campaign, called “iParticipate,” hopes to make service a part of who we are as Americans and show what we can achieve when we all pull together.

As a centerpiece for this initiative, EIF has enlisted major broadcast networks including, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, for an unprecedented, week-long television event beginning Monday, October 19. Tune in to seven days and nights of television and watch how your favorite TV shows and personalities shine a light on the power of community service.

EIF has also produced a series of public service announcements to reinforce the importance of volunteerism. Through these PSAs, EIF will also recognize and encourage support for five key areas of service: Education & Children, Health & Well Being, Economic Development, Environmental Conservation, and Support for Military Families.

Capacity Building Grants

In addition to generating heightened awareness about the value of community service, EIF will provide grants to key volunteer/service organizations to help build their capacity to accept, train and deploy volunteers in areas of the greatest need. Men and women of the entertainment industry will help fuel the drive to service not just by showing its benefits to the country, but also by bringing home its tangible benefits to the people who volunteer.

EIF grantees include:



    The heart of America’s service movement, ServiceNation is a coalition of 200 nonprofits that cut across all walks of American life - representing community, faith-based, and national service organizations with members of all age, education and income levels - to create meaningful service opportunities and build a stronger nation through increased volunteerism. By getting involved in ServiceNation, Americans can engage in any form of service that best suits their interests, skills, and schedules.

    ServiceNation is providing strategic support to EIF’s iParticipate by working with its member organizations to provide quality volunteer experiences for Americans who are inspired to answer the call to serve, and by helping its member organizations promote those service opportunities and report the outcomes of their efforts. We are proud to support iParticipate’s unprecedented contribution to expand the service movement, which will bring us closer to realizing our vision of a day when a commonly asked question in America is, "Where do you serve?"



    UCLA Volunteer Center

    An EIF grant to the UCLA Foundation helped bring about the first-ever, day-long volunteer event for new UCLA students participating in service projects spread across Los Angeles on September 22, 2009. UCLA Volunteer Day mobilized more than 5,000 students participating in restoration and beautification projects at eight locations in Los Angeles: Griffith Park, Point Dume State Beach, the VA Hospital and five local schools.

    City Year

    City Year unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world. Over 1,500 City Year corps members in locations across America will serve more than 2.5 million hours. Each of these young leaders is making a difference by serving 1,700 hours as tutors, mentors and role models. The City Year corps members help students at-risk of dropping out stay in school and on track. Uniquely qualified to improve student attendance, behavior and coursework, members help students and schools succeed.

    City Year’s work in Los Angeles is made possible thanks to a $1 million capacity building grant from the Entertainment Industry Foundation, Hollywood’s leading charity and City Year’s Los Angeles’ Impact Sponsor.
