The Screenwriters Colony is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that relies on public support to operate. All gifts are fully tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. Charitable contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations help the Colony continue its support of the film industry’s most talented, up-and-coming writers. The only program for screenwriters of its kind, each year the Colony offers industry-nominated writers a month-long residency in Nantucket – substantial, invaluable, rare creative time to devote to their craft. During the residence, the writers also have access to respected and diverse members of the film industry, from studio executives and managers to accomplished writers and directors, who serve as Colony Mentors. Colonists develop lasting creative relationships with their Mentors and each other and are presented with an extraordinary opportunity to improve themselves, their work, and, in turn, the genre of screenwriting. Your donations give exceptional talent the time and tools needed to create greatness. A contribution to The Screenwriters Colony is a contribution to the future of film.
