As we head into our 15th year, donations to our organization are more critical than ever as we continue our work supporting working artists and our community of patrons. Your contribution supports these ongoing initiatives and sustains our programming and supports more artists in our growing community.

Your contributions help fund exhibitions and informative programming year-round.  The majority of programming during the annual Filter Photo Festival is free and open to the public as is so much of what Filter Photo offers to artists and patrons throughout the year – from Artist Talks by visiting artists to our popular Photography Book Club, Filter Photo creates programs that support photographic makers and those that simply love photography.

Initiatives at Filter Photo include the Filter Photo Fellowship which supports an emerging arts administrator with a year-long, paid fellowship as a programming staff member at Filter. 


The High School Initiative Project which began in 2018 with four students attending the annual Filter Photo Festival from area Chicago Public Schools.  The students receive two professional portfolio reviews each as well as participate in Roaming Reviews and attend the daily Artist Talk.

The College Scholarship Fund specifically supports students pursuing degrees at local universities and community colleges.  Scholarships provide opportunities for students to supplement their education with professional workshops and masterclasses during Filter Photo Festival or to engage in professional portfolio reviews.

When you donate to Filter Photo your contribution supports these initiatives as well as our international exhibition program!
