The Broward County Film Society (parent organization of Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and Cinema Paradiso) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit cultural organization. Your tax deductible donation sustains all of the programs and makes it possible, even in the tough times, to keep going. Below are just a few ways you can keep the magic alive.
Though not as sexy as a new program or a piece of new equipment, we can testify that no donation is as important. General Operations include the utilities, film rights, repairs and maintenance, fuel, insurance, fees, salaries...in short, everything we need to pay to exist. Your donation will receive program credit in the Annual FLIFF Catalog.
Mary Porter was a philanthropist and humanitarian who lived in Broward County. She believed that giving back is a part of who we are as a people. Mary's giving spanned the range of all issues in Broward including the arts, animal welfare, health and human services and more. She enjoyed investing in community solutions and was excited to be a part of a community of active givers. Mary worked with the Community Foundation in her philanthropy during her lifetime and wanted us to be the stewards of her giving after she was gone.
One of three Funds created in the fall of 2012 from her estate, the Mary N. Porter Legacy Fund at the Community Foundation of Broward is designed to support capital projects including new construction, renovations and other major capital initiatives to improve the quality of services in Broward. This is the first Fund of this kind in our county, specifically addressing the capital needs of our community.
Out of twenty-six applicants, Cinema Paradiso Hollywood (CPH) was one of three selected projects to win funding from the Porter Fund. The Fund will match $1 for $1 monies raised to create CPH up to $150,000.
Founded in 2006 by FLIFF Member John Mager, The Millennium Club (TMC) is dedicated to the enhancement of Cinema Paradiso, Ft. Lauderdale, our headquarters and flagship theatre. Over the years, TMC has enhanced so many vital aspects of the theater.
