In that capacity, Feig oversees all aspects of development and production on a slate of between 10-12 movies a year for Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment. Films originated, supervised, or produced by him have earned nearly $4 billion at the global box office and have won multiple awards including an Academy Award for Best Picture.

Feig’s involvement with the LA Promise Fund dates back to 1998, when he became a mentor for students at an underprivileged high school in Los Angeles, under the auspices of Fulfillment Fund’s College Pathways, which later grew into Center for Innovative Education, then Mentor LA, LA’s Promise, and now LA Promise Fund. Inspired by the organization’s greater mission to provide life-changing opportunities for students, teachers, and parents in Los Angeles, Feig joined the Board of Directors in 2003. He and his fellow board members played a key role in the development and design of the West Adams Preparatory High School which launched in 2007 and are actively involved with the supervision of John Muir Middle School and Manual Arts High School. Feig remains dedicated to community outreach and development in LA and is grateful to be a part of an organization which began as a mentorship program for a cohort of 30 students and now serves over 8,000 students.
