Andy Ostroy, chairman/CEO of list services firm Belardi/Ostroy ALC LLC, has launched a nonprofit organization called The Adrienne Shelly Foundation in memory of his late wife.

The foundation plans to open a Women's Filmmaking Scholarship Fund, awarding females film school scholarships and helping women move from acting to directing movies.

Those wishing to contribute to the nonprofit may mail checks for The Adrienne Shelly Foundation to Belardi/Ostroy ALC LLC, 16 W. 22nd St., 11th Floor, New York, NY 10010. Please post-date checks to Dec. 15 until the foundation's legal status is final.

Adrienne Shelly was killed Nov. 1 in her West Village office in New York. She is survived by her husband and a 3-year-old daughter, Sophie.

Ms. Shelly acted in director Hal Hartley's "The Unbelievable Truth" and "Trust." She appeared most recently as Jerry in "Factotum," a movie with Matt Dillon. She appeared in more than 20 films.

Ms. Shelly also wrote and directed "Sudden Manhattan," "I'll Take You There" and the soon-to-be-released "Waitress."
