Sony Pictures is actively building the future of entertainment through investment in technology and people. At Sony Pictures, we are committed to pursuing business practices that sustain the growth and renewability of our industry, the health and well-being of consumers and our employees; and the vibrancy of the world around us.
Technical innovation brings new tools to those behind the camera and new experiences to those in front of the screen; and we, as an industry and as a company, continue to adapt to nearly 100 years of progress and counting. From new digital products and services like UltraViolet or Crackle, to the latest Visual Effects and animation techniques and technology, we are charting a new path for the future of entertainment. At the same time, we believe in the importance of preserving our history through education and advocacy.
We believe companies that are good citizens to the world help sustain their own and others’ futures. We give back to our local communities and empower employees to engage with their colleagues to benefit the community, individuals, and our company. Our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts are focused on arts, education, diversity and the environment, as well as giving in the communities closest to our headquarters.
Grants are evaluated for project or program’s expected outcomes and demonstrations of good community investments. Please note, however, due to limited funds, priority is given to grants aimed at arts and culture, education, the environment, diversity initiatives and workplace training as it relates to the entertainment industry. We concentrate our giving in the Culver City/Los Angeles County area. If you are seeking event sponsorship or in-kind donations, please fill out one of the applications below.
Please complete this application for corporate sponsorship of events, galas, fundraisers, benefits and activities. Please note, however, due to limited funds, our support of these types of events are reserved for organizations whose efforts align specifically with our studio’s investment strategies.

On occasion, Sony Pictures Entertainment can help community-based organizations through in-kind/non-cash donations. Examples include auction items, excess equipment (capital assets), services, studio rentals and branded give-away items. The availability and variety of these materials and services varies greatly and may require additional lead time.
