The American Documentary and Animation Film Festival (AmDocs) is proud to continue its partnership with our Feature Sponsors, who represent our top sponsorship levels and vital contributors to our success. Our Presenting Sponsor, once again, is the American Small Business League. The ASBL's motto is A Bigger Voice for Small Business. And it shows.
The American Small Business League was founded on the principle that small businesses are the backbone of a vital American economy, and should receive a fair portion of the total value of all prime contracts -- 23 percent -- as mandated by the Small Business Act of 1953.
The ASBL seeks to achieve the following goals:
End abuses and close loopholes that allow large corporations in the U.S. and Europe to receive federal small business contracts.
Promote the interests of legitimate small businesses, which are the backbone of the U.S. economy.
Reverse policies that have hurt small businesses seeking contracts with the federal government.
Support policy makers who help small businesses and oppose those who do not.
Ensure that the Small Business Act is enforced and that the small business procurement goal -- currently 23 percent -- is increased.
ASBL is the one organization that unites small businesses in America to speak with a common voice in addressing small business contracting issues. For more information, please visit their web site at ASBL.com.
Our Premier Sponsors for 2020 are The Auen Foundation and the City of Palm Desert.
The Auen Foundation is a private foundation formed in 1991 as a non-profit, grant-making organization benefiting a broad range of health-related needs. In 1995, the Foundation chose to redefine its mission and concentrate on the aging population and its emerging needs. Believing that mature citizens are an important component of a vibrant community, the Foundation is dedicated to building and supporting aging programs that include the entire family. The Foundation has awarded more than 800 grants to charitable and educational programs and services in the Coachella Valley since its inception. For more information, please visit their web site at AuenFoundation.org.
The City of Palm Desert is a thriving, year-round community in the heart of the Coachella Valley, with the natural beauty and recreational amenities of a resort destination. Palm Desert offers big-city resources in a friendly, small-town setting. With first-class educational facilities, a healthy real estate market, varied job opportunities, safe and clean streets, plentiful parks, and a wealth of shopping choices, Palm Desert is unique among Coachella Valley cities.
