A message from Ross Kauffman, Academy Award-winning director:
"The BDC is a place that combines the best parts of the spirit of New York City - reinvention, commitment, energy and vitality and a melting pot of people from all walks of life.
The BDC brings the top documentary photographers and filmmakers from around the world straight to the Bronx. The mix of professional artists, children, teenagers, parents, and the people of the Bronx give the BDC a rare mix of people that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. It’s truly unique and inspiring. I haven’t seen anything like it before.
With 5 days to go, you still have a chance to make an impact. Let’s help the Bronx Documentary Center meet its stretch goal of $7500 by April 15!”

Think we can raise $7500 in 7 days?
We want to thank everyone who has joined our efforts in making documentary photo and film available to everyone.
The BDC is active creating challenging exhibitions, scheduling compelling films and coordinating our after-school program. $30,000 is just the beginning of what we need to create these programs.
The BDC is a 501(c)3 non-profit and we thrive on gifts from donors like you. It’s not too late to make a tax-deductible gift which will bring in-depth discussion and thought-provoking film and photography to wider audiences.
We did it! You helped us meet our goal!
In the middle of brunch today, I got a call from Mike, followed by a flurry of texts from staff and volunteers with the good news that we reached our $30,000 goal on Kickstarter. We are all so excited.
We want to thank everyone who has donated, tweeted, blogged, and emailed to support the campaign and spread the word.
The BDC is a 501(c)3 non-profit that depends on the generosity of individuals like you. And with eight days left, there is more we can raise! It’s not too late to make a tax-deductible gift which will bring in-depth discussion and thought-provoking film and photography to wider audiences.
It’s been so moving to have all of your support.
With gratitude and appreciation,
Danielle and the team at the BDC
