When I first started out, I was lucky enough to meet Jack Lemmon who encouraged me to become an actor. He subsequently became a great mentor in my life. Jack had a phrase that he used all the time that I’ve now adopted as my own. He believed that if you’ve been successful in your chosen path, if you’ve been able to realize your ambition, then you are obligated to:

“Send the elevator back down”

That’s why I’ve set up The Kevin Spacey Foundation (KSF).

We enable the creation of new work via KSF Artists of Choice, design bespoke education opportunities through KSF Learning, and offer subsidized university places via KSF Scholarships. We also create glamorous Gala Events to build support for the Foundation.

I’d love you to help me keep the elevator moving, and in good working order, so that we can bring along as many passengers as possible.


Kevin Spacey, Founder
