Matching Fund Opportunity

Wonderful News: an anonymous donor, together with members of our Board of Directors, have jointly pledged to match all donations up to $4,500 made to VTIFF by December 31st.

The purpose of this matching challenge is designated specifically to help us increase and establish our screenings in high schools and to extend our Global Roots New Americans film series to additional venues and communities. These are two major programs that are already in place but for which we lack the resources and manpower to develop and consolidate. Each screening costs us in film rental fees and in staff time to prepare educational support materials and to reach out to teachers, educators and New American communities.

Any amount you donate will be automatically doubled and if the full amount is reached before the year’s end, we’ll have a total of $9,000 that will help significantly towards achieving these goals.

It’s easy to give: click HERE to donate via Paypal, or send a check to VTIFF, 230 College Street, Burlington VT, 05041.

The Vermont International Film Foundation is a 501(c)3 and each donation is tax deductible to the extent that the law allows. You will also receive a letter acknowledging your donation for IRS purposes.

Don’t hesitate and please don’t wait – 2015 is our 30th Anniversary! We have bold educational and cultural ambitions and with your gift we can make huge strides. Help us enrich the community through film before December 31st and to further establish ourselves together with the Burlington Film Society as a year-round organization focused on developing film culture in our community.

Many thanks and happy holidays!
