Recap: Our Community Partners of Q3 2021

As part of Marmoset’s overarching purpose, Be Community, we invest 10% of all profits (from our share, never the artist) in nonprofits and organizations enacting real, positive change in our community and beyond. Every quarter, we partner up with organizations fighting for social, environmental and educational equity.

We couldn’t do this without you – the clients, filmmakers, directors and editors who choose Marmoset. Your business keeps our lights on and allows us to give back to our community.
