Endowment Fund

FILM FORUM CAMPAIGN FOR THE FUTURE

Film Forum’s endowment began by an unsolicited challenge grant of $1.25 million by the Ford Foundation. Earnings from the endowment contribute to our operating budget and is currently worth $4.4 million. Gifts of $100,000 or more may be used to create endowed funds for the support of specific types of films. 

The current list of endowed funds includes:

THE JOAN S. CONSTANTINER FUND FOR JEWISH AND HOLOCAUST FILMS, DONATED BY LEON CONSTANTINER AND FAMILY

THE RICHARD BRICK, GERI ASHUR, AND SARA BERSHTEL FUND FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE DOCUMENTARIES

THE R.G. RIFKIND FOUNDATION ENDOWMENT FOR QUEER CINEMA

THE GEORGE FASEL MEMORIAL FUND FOR CLASSIC FRENCH CINEMA

THE HELEN FRANKENTHALER ENDOWED FUND FOR FILMS ON ART
