Give Online

Some of you are old enough to remember lay away, and QWOCMAP is bringing it back for arts and social justice!

Becoming a monthly sustainer is super easy. You can make your tax-deductible contribution online, and big spenders can designate a quarterly or yearly gift.

Our Tax ID # is: 80-0094746

You can designate your gift in honor of a family member, friend, coworker or an inspiring queer woman of color, and QWOCMAP will let that person know about your contribution (but not the amount).

Give Online via Groundspring

Have a Party

There is no party like a QWOCMAP House Party!

Hosting a house party is a great way to create community and change. Our fabulous House Party Guide will help you plan a sweet soiree to benefit QWOCMAP. Please call us for a copy of the guide. We'll partner with you to plan a great event and you'll have have fun fun(d)raising.

Create Donor Circle

Donor circles pool resources to make a bigger impact and create social change. For QWOCMAP's 10th anniversary, we ask that our supporters create circle of 10 donors to donate $10+ each. That's $100 for each donor circle and 100 donor cirles to help us meet the goal of $10,000 for our 10th anniversary.


Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP) offers FREE programs to the community because we have a strong commitment to equitable access and economic justice.

With the cloudy economic climate, we've been pressured to charge for our programs. Yet we believe that our communities need hope in the face of dismal forecasts. Films are our life-giving rain, our nourishing earth and ray of sunshine.

QWOCMAP creates, exhibits and distributes stories of queer women and trans folks of color, so we're way more fun than Public TV. Unlike them, we create images rarely seen in the mainstream media, but just like Public TV, we ask our filmmakers, audiences and supporters to help us to keep our programs free.

Investing in Queer Women of Color

QWOCMAP strategically invests in the queer women of color community by enhancing artistic development and arts participation through equitable access to films and filmmaking. We actively invest in, develop and nurture the leadership and creativity of Asian Pacific Islander, Black/African American, Chicana/Latina, Native/American Indian and Mixed-Race lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning women. Our free programs guarantee full access to our community, especially to low-income and immigrant queer women of color.

QWOCMAP programs are cost-effective and efficient to make the most of every donation that we receive. Your donation ensures that all of our programs remain free of charge. Please give the gift of films created by queer women of color and treat your friends, family and community to the movies.

As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of QWOCMAP creating films, filmmakers and community, we would be thrilled that you have chosen to be a part of our dynamic and growing organization!
