The immediate goal of The Better Angels Society is to provide funding for American history documentary films currently in production for PBS as well as the educational engagement tools that accompany them. In addition, we are supporting a new generation of filmmakers that craft American history documentaries that are compelling and diverse in the model of Ken Burns’s films.

DONATE NOW

Friends of the Better Angels will receive invitations to special screenings in your area, and a subscription to our newsletter. Your gift allows us to support the production of high-quality documentaries, educational outreach, and initiatives that emphasize civil discourse.

You’ll also be helping develop a robust educational engagement plan to deliver the films of Ken Burns and their accompanying classroom materials to schools across the country.

Multiple annual contributions might, over the life of longer projects, place a donor in a higher membership tier and permit that donor to enjoy all associated benefits.

The Better Angels Society is a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
