Do you remember being asked as a child, “what do you want to be when you grow up”? You may have said, doctor, or policeman, or ballerina.  The sky was the limit!

Almost no one ever said, “I want to tell stories about people helping people, while giving back to my community when I grow up!”  

But giving back is core to the mission of Desire to Inspire Studios Foundation (D2iSF), and it is the opportunity they offer young adults looking to explore a career in visual, video, and broadcast media.

Giving Back is what D2ISF did when the world shut down in 2020. When the going got tough, The DTISF team sprang into action to help Marin nonprofits raise more than a million dollars to help keep their doors open at a critical time. As is their policy, D2iSF offered their help even when there was no budget to pay them.

Every nonprofit needs community heroes who believe in their mission to make the world a better place!

You can be out community HERO today, by making a donation to Desire to Inspire Studios Foundation Internship Fund! Go To to donate today!


Through individually tailored D2iSF internships, high school students and young adults earn hands-on experience taking photographs or shooting video footage at real-life fundraisers, business mixers, and community celebrations. They get to interact with actual clients, and they gain skill –and confidence—editing videos and producing polished multi-media products.

Marin-based D2ISF is a place where young adults explore “what they want to be when they grow up.” A college track is not right for every young person and D2iSF offers internships that give hands-on training at no cost to the student. Each internship costs $3,500 to underwrite, and charitable donations go a long way to helping a kid with a dream find a career with meaning.

Wont you help us achieve our goal $10,500 and make a tax-deductible gift to our  internship fund today! 

Your support means that a young adult who doesn’t fit the “college profile” can find a creative and fulfilling career that makes a positive impact on our world, and theirs.

THANK YOU for considering making D2iSF part of your holiday giving tradition. We wish you a happy, healthy holiday season, and a prosperous new year!
