The American Indian College Fund

The AICF 25th Anniversary

The American Indian College Fund is the nation's largest provider of scholarships and educational support to Native Americans. On the cusp of their 25th Anniversary they invited Fade In to present their recommendations on a series of videos to headline their 25th Anniversary celebration - marked by 3 Galas in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago from October 2014 - May of 2015. 


Fade In: Creative responded with the "Creating Heroes Together" campaign - a series of videos, each showcasing different aspects of the College Fund's inspiring work, and stories told from the point-of-view of the organization's "Heroes" - their students. 


This video, titled "We Will" is an introduction to many Native Scholars whose hopes and dreams for a better future have been made possible by the work of the College Fund. They share a powerful, bold, and inspired message of hope and determination to reach their dreams in the face of great adversity. This video was used to kick-off the night's reception and set the tone for an inspired celebration. 


Footage for the College Fund's 25th Anniversary videos was filmed all throughout the US in locations including Devil's Lake, North Dakota, New York City, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Missouri, Denver, Colorado, San Diego, California, and Philadelphia, PA
