You can donate to the American Documentary and Animation Film Festival (AmDocs) in a variety of ways.

The AmDocs staff and team works 365 days a year to create an unforgettable Film Fund and Film Festival each Spring filled with an exciting and thrilling display of documentary and animated films, Palm Springs-type hospitality, and inspiring conversations and panels that celebrate the world of film. In addition to planning our annual Festival, the AmDocs staff works year-round to:

  • Coordinate Community Education and Cultural Events throughout the Coachella Valley.

  • Offer free film events in public settings to broaden the world of documentary and animated films, and bring them to audiences that might otherwise be unable to experience such events.

  • Bring an Expanded Summer Screening Series and work with other non-profit groups to bring the world of documentary and animated films to seniors, students and many more.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, AmDocs relies upon, and is grateful for, the support of our community and donors.

We need your help to grow and sustain our impact by making a tax-deductible gift or becoming an AmDocs member. One-time, monthly, and quarterly donations of any amount can be made by contacting us via our contact page. Becoming an AmDocs member presents attractive benefits like advance ticket sales and access to passes before the general public. Are you interested in concierge service at our Festival, exclusive filmmaker parties, and priority Festival seating? Becoming a member gets you all of that, and more.

Planned giving is also a valuable tool we have at AmDocs. While outright gifts provide vital and important resources for us today, planned gifts help to ensure the impact of AmDocs for years to come. We are proud to offer a number of customizable gift-planning options that help further the mission of AmDocs, while also fulfilling your own personal financial and philanthropic goals. A properly planned gift may help you reduce or eliminate capital gains, and gift and estate taxes. You may realize immediate tax savings as well. We would be thrilled to assist you in any planned giving.

Would you be interested in having an individual screening or Festival Award named in your honor or in the name of someone you love or admire? We would love to discuss any exciting options with you, and are open to hearing your ideas. AmDocs is a community event and we would love to have you be a big part of it.

Please contact us today via email at to learn more. Or donate directly now, at the dollar amount of your choice via PayPal or a credit card, by clicking the Donate button on this page.
