WHY: The mission of The Tull Family Theater, a film-based nonprofit, is to strengthen cultural, educational and entertainment experiences in the region northwest of Pittsburgh.

Sponsored outreach programming last year enabled the theater to welcome more than 360 children from underserved areas, many of them entering a cinema for the first time.

The theater’s goal is to at least double that number served in its second year of operation by securing regular programming support from individuals, corporations and foundations.
