Partners in Kind is a media and communications company bringing purpose to production by developing and investing in film and television projects aimed at inspiring tangible acts of kindness and compassion, building community, and generating momentum around social change.
At the heart of PIK are the Purpose in Production Impact Funds, which focus on creating programming that motivates viewers to contribute, connect, and spread compassion throughout the world. By collaborating with social impact leaders, prominent nonprofit organizations, and NGOs, PIK strives to generate robust awareness and drive tangible change on a global level for the most crucial issues of our time.


Established in 2022 by philanthropists Gillian Hormel and Shelly Tygielski, Partners in Kind centers storytelling at the intersection of inspirational impact and entertainment. Gillian and Shelly met through Pandemic of Love {link out to Pandemic of Love}, the global grassroots organization founded at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Working together to help individuals and families with essential needs during the pandemic (and beyond), the two formed a deep friendship and realized that they wanted to broaden their impact, motivate others to rise up and use their resources and platforms to amplify the voices and stories that need to be heard.
Content that makes people feel good, shares important stories, and inspires kind acts should not be a hard sell in the world that we live in…and yet it is. Content that is good can also do good. And content that does good can also do well. Realizing this, Partners in Kind seeks to broaden the narrative once and for all.
