Who We Are

Urban Communications Group was formed in 1980 as a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) media foundation to enable the creation of educational films, video and other media which is in the public interest.


The mission of Urban Communications Group is to help producers create films about subjects that we consider to be important but may not otherwise be told. We know that our financial help brings wider exposure to subjects and ideas we believe to be significant, though not necessarily popular.


Ever since Urban Communications Group was founded, we have supported a large number of films and videos about subjects ranging from the arts, to animal welfare, to health, and other social and community concerns. As a result of our commitment to high standards and artistic quality, we are proud to say that a large number of the productions we have supported have received wide recognition; and have been seen by people worldwide.
