Helping the World GROW through Philanthropy and Film


Our Mission

GROW Awareness Agency was created to support groups and individuals making a positive difference in the world. We combine documentary filmmaking and grass-roots activism to support your philanthropic mission. 


OUR Vision

We aim to create a culture of collaboration between non-profits, businesses, schools, and artists who are actively engaged in philanthropy.

It was important to connect with a leader who could effectively work with our underserved youth and have an immediate impact on student achievement; Adam Steel was that individual. and the foundation are inspired by his fine work because he is able to collaborate naturally with critical partners, creatively express his leadership, and produce an outcome that can be shared with a global audience via filmmaking.
