Dick and Ziering will be donating $25K of their own money to split among the organizations.

The three participating organizations include:

But that’s not all—there’s a social media aspect, too. So, here’s how the interactive aspect of this works: To create further awareness, the filmmakers will match an additional $1 for every retweet that their initial announcement tweet (this one) gets over the course of next week, up to $25K. That means a total of $50K will be split between these three organizations.


As noted in the press release sent to The Root, this will be the first charity campaign of its kind led by a film. As we’ve noted in the past, this documentary serves as a reminder that Black women’s voices are constantly erased throughout many aspects of society, including the music industry and the media which supports it.


With this initiative, the filmmakers are taking one more step to ensure Black women aren’t silenced—and are putting their money where their mouths are.

You can currently stream On the Record on HBO Max.
