About Bibiyan Family Philanthropic Foundation
Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bibiyan Family Philanthropic Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives.
Below please find a list of core values that are inherently significant to the foundation and its goals going forward.
Innovation; We want to reward contemporary, high tech companies that use creative and innovative means to address social problems. We intend on giving out grants, awards, and additional accolades to companies or groups that fit. Ben & Jerry’s was the first company to be awarded the BFPF Award for Social Good
Humanity; The foundation intends on supporting the most essential of humanitarian causes and organizations. The American Red Cross, and Glasser Pediatric AIDS foundation are two such organizations BFPF remains committed to.
Spirituality; The need for spirituality in our society has never been greater. From all walks of spiritual and religious life, BFPF will continue to support causes rooted in helping the community reach its full spiritual potential. Chabad House of New York and California along with The Center for Buddhism in Los Angeles are just two such examples of organizations we pledge further commitment to.
Liberty & Democracy; To support political movements that dictate liberty, democracy, and fairness for all members of society has become a pivotal point for BFPF and will no doubt continue in the future. Democracy Now, Common Dreams, and the Occupy Movements have all been supported in the past by BFPF.
“Tom Bibiyan, independent film producer kicks off our second season with tales from the trenches. He tells us why a nice boy making a good living in the finance industry would want to jump in to a documentary about Transgender culture. Spoiler alert – the answer is money. JJ Abrams is directing the new Star Wars! The Superb Owl is this Sunday! Dogs learning how to drive! So many things to be excited about…or not…we really don’t care. (Please love us).“
Tom Bibiyan is pleased to announce his official involvement and participation in the short film piece Strange Fruit as Associate Producer. Says Mr. Bibiyan “I’m thrilled to be a part of this budding team.”
“Strange Fruit”, written and directed by Anabelle Munro and starring the seasoned actress in a small voice cameo as “Alex”, is a heart-felt film about the touchy subject abortion and about how the truth can set you free. Munro, besides being an award winning actress and director is also the CEO of the LA based production company “Blue Boots Entertainment”.
“Strange Fruit” is dedicated to a young boy who would have not been born without the courage of his mother and the power of transforming dark chapters in the past into the guiding light of now. Starring the talented Daniela Torchia not only as Mary, but also as the composer, singer & songwriter of the film’s beautiful original soundtrack and score, and Lauren Annette Schoth, who debuts in this heart-felt story as Lucy, her first leading role on screen, both actresses interpret characters written for them in this moving, at times disturbing, yet always life embracing film.
