The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) will host its annual Grants Banquet on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. More than $2 million in funds to nonprofit entertainment-related organizations and scholarship programs will be presented, with the help of A-list stars, like in previous years.
For more than 25 years, the HFPA has committed nearly $30 million in grants, provided more than 1,500 scholarships and helped restore over 90 titles. The mission of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Charitable Trust is to foster education, diversity and creative expression in art and film through a variety of programs and special grants. Through the annual Grants Banquet, the HFPA will continue to provide funds and resources to institutions and people that need it most.
