Love and Basketball Mentoring Program
by Daphne Stallings
The Access Foundation knows that physical development is just as important as mental development when it comes to make a well-rounded individual which is why we have taken a holistic approach in integrating nutrition and fitness into the academics that our students receive. The program strengthens students' confidence, boosts their self- esteem, teaches them discipline, and builds their character.

The objective of this program is to promote leadership in boys from ages 8 to 18, and give them a safe and friendly environment to play. Not only do the boys get to hone their basketball skills, they grasp how to work successfully as a team and how to build meaningful relationships. The mentors strive to guide, support, and empower the boys to build healthy relationships and learn respect their peers.

Once You Learn to Read, You will be Forever Free!
by Craig Hardcastle
Books for Newborns fulfills our mission by providing age appropriate books and reading encouragement to low-income families at the time of a child's birth, which builds a foundation of knowledge and literacy in children when it is needed the most. Getting books into homes of babies can also be the first step in creating an interest in reading by the whole family. This includes the parents, siblings, and other adults involved. Books for Newborns is a program that can be the spark that ignites a love of reading. This love can help create pathways out of poverty and struggles many low-income families face generation to generation.

The goal is to get a bookbag filled with four books to be used in the first four years of a child's life and a card which encourages holding the baby, engaging with the baby, and exploring the wonderful world of reading together. Partner agencies distribute the bookbags at their organizations and hospitals. By partnering with area hospitals and organizations that work directly with mothers at the time of their child's birth or at some point before the age of one, we can get these reading resources to the family when it is most useful and can produce a lasting impact.

The books were chosen with the help of local librarians to ensure they are appropriate for the development of the baby and the card was created with the help of social workers who work with mothers and babies. Books for Newborns is run by an all-volunteer staff and Board of Directors. Each dollar raised goes toward books, bags, and cards that are delivered to our partners.

Sustain Cinema St. Louis
by Bree Maniscalco
Cinema St. Louis is deeply grateful for the support we receive from the St. Louis community and beyond. Countless volunteers, filmmakers, donors, and sponsors make our mission of presenting independent films possible.

Because of the ongoing world health crisis, Cinema St. Louis is moving events scheduled in April and May to dates in the summer, when we hope the virus will have abated and normal activities can resume in some form. Given that the situation remains highly unpredictable, further changes are always possible, and CSL will keep our members and supporters informed as soon as decisions are made.

St. Louis is acclaimed as a highly successful sports town but the city should be equally lauded for its support of the arts. Filmmakers have come to rely on CSL to provide them with platforms to showcase their stories on the big screen. Film is one of the most moving art forms of our time and we believe that every member of our community, regardless their ability to pay, should have year-round access to innovative, educational, and inspirational storytelling through film.

Cinema St. Louis is a stable organization, managed by a dedicated staff and passionate board. Our careful shepherding of a diverse portfolio of funding has made it possible to build a strong reserve. The unwavering support we receive from sponsors, donors, and members has made this possible.

In an effort to not rely entirely on our reserves and to endure what could be weeks to months of postponements, we will look to limit expenses and creatively inspire contributions to sustain our festivals, educational programs, filmmaking camps, and organizational capacity.

And you can take the lead by contributing today. Your contribution can help us shine a light on even more local, national, and global filmmakers when our events do occur in the near future.

Thank you.
