WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR OUR DONORS
Support Pickford Film Center’s ongoing operations with a gift during COVID-19 closure
Please give generously to support Pickford Film Center so our organization can stay viable as we all move forward towards reopening gradually and safely. There has been a PPP loan and some grants but the secret sauce for keeping the Pickford’s head above water during COVID closure has been the unwavering support of our members and donors. Donations fund ongoing expenses and staff salaries associated with programming virtual cinema offerings and preparing to reopen.
As an acknowledgement of their special role, PFC donors are listed in our annual report and on our website.
