The American Experience Trust

Investing in the Future of American Experience

With incisive documentaries complemented by innovative digital content and dynamic social media, American Experience re-examines and explores the moments and individuals that history books often overlook. Maintaining a commitment to sharing diverse perspectives, the series elevates new voices—both in front of the lens and behind the camera.

The American Experience Trust serves as a mechanism for individuals and families to make philanthropic gifts in support of American Experience. Gifts to the series bolster all aspects of film production, development of digital content, and more.

With more than 35 years of excellence in historical documentary filmmaking, and exciting, new projects being developed every year, there has never been a more perfect time to invest in the future of American Experience.

As our society grapples with questions of equality, fairness, and representation, we have a responsibility to show that American history belongs to all of us, and we should all be a part of the telling and interpretation of it.
