The James and Paula Coburn Foundation has supported the Motion Picture and Television Fund through programs and projects aimed at inspiring and fostering creativity and spirituality for its members. With a mission to create a sense of community and cultivate a philanthropic spirit in the entertainment industry by supporting a safety net of programs and services for the benefit of fellow industry members in times of need, MPTF efforts are at the core of James and Paula Coburn’s philosophic perspective.

JPCF’s flagship project with MPTF is the wellness garden, designed to provide a relaxing haven for residents of the MPTF, while providing a fitting legacy to the Coburns. Amidst teeming flora, the wellness garden includes a gong, a spherical continuous motion fountain, and a custom Yin-Yang pergola, encompassing the Coburns’ dedication to health, while incorporating Paula’s love for gardening and the outdoors and Jim’s spirituality and affinity for Eastern traditions.
