The Broward County Film Society is the very essence of non-profit. As a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Cultural Institution, your gift is tax-deductible (consult your accountant on IRS rules). We gladly accept both restricted (you can designate how you want your money spent!) and unrestricted (general operating funds aren’t sexy, but they make the machine go!).

You can buy a theater chair and have your name inscribed! Then the chair can always be reserved just for you!

It doesn’t have to be cash…stocks are accepted as well. You can also donate property.


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. 

Make check payable to:
Broward County Film Society, Inc
1314 East Las Olas Blvd. #007
Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301

Give - Time

One of the most valuable gifts

your time. We need volunteers 365 days a year. At Cinema Paradiso Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood locations, we need help answering the phone, selling tickets, ushering, cleaning, helping with gala events, cutting the grass, counting ballots…and away from CP we have outdoor movies, parties, community outreach, plus our outreach to Sunrise, Weston, Davie, Pompano, St Augustine and Grand Bahama Island.


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 and Cinema Paradiso Hollywood is a proud recipient.
