The charities we have sponsored during previous events include:

In 2007, at our first charity screening, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode “Once More with Feeling”, we sponsored the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, which is “a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing pediatric HIV infection and eliminating pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention, care, and treatment programs.”
In 2008, at our first charity screening of both Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog and The Guild, we sponsored PATH Ventures, whose mission is “to improve individual lives and communities by increasing quality affordable housing and creating opportunities for economic, civic and personal empowerment.”  PATH Ventures is a division of PATH
In 2009, 2011, and 2014 at our 2nd, 4th and 7th charity screenings of both Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog and The Guild, we sponsored Kids Need to Read, so that they can “create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children.”
In 2010, at our third charity screening of both Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog and The Guild, we sponsored The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which “keeps music alive in our schools and communities by donating musical instruments to under-funded music programs, giving youngsters the many benefits of music education, helping them to be better students and inspiring creativity and expression through playing music.”

JFS + SOVA logo Also during the 2012 and 2013 charity screenings, we held a canned food drive for SOVA, a “Community Food & Resource Program which responds to hunger in our community by providing individuals and families with the resources they need to regain self-sufficiency and independence, including free groceries, case management, counseling, and other supportive services, such as legal counseling and job search assistance.”

Our 2015 events once again supported Kids Need to Read, to help continue their efforts to “create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children.”
