Giving to Cornell Cinema
“One of the greatest sources of culture
available to the Cornell community.”
—Paul Cueva ’10, College of Engineering
“Cornell Cinema has exposed me to an entirely different and diverse world of films that I would not have seen otherwise.”— Daniela Beall '11, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
“To my mind, Cornell Cinema is the single best extra-curricular program that the University offers. Stimulating, well-organized, smart…” —Josi Ward, graduate student in College of Architecture, Art and Planning
“I didn't need to go to film school. Cornell Cinema was my film school.”
—Doug Block ’75, Sundance, Emmy and Peabody-award winning filmmaker
If one of these quotes rings true for you and you care about keeping film culture vibrant in Ithaca, then you’ve come to the right place!
Cornell Cinema celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2010, and for 4 decades, we managed to keep our projectors rolling with little assistance from individual donations. But with rapidly evolving technologies changing the ways films are released and experienced, we now critically need your help.
A donation from you, large or small, will help us continue to offer the wide variety and quality of films patrons have come to expect from Cornell Cinema, as well as present the increasingly important live events (visiting filmmakers, live music/film performances) that bring people into the theatre at a time when there are so many alternative ways to view a film on its own.
Please accept our invitation to become a Friend of Cornell Cinema by making a tax-deductible contribution. Unrestricted gifts, no matter what the amount, help support Cornell Cinema. Gifts may also be designated to support a specific area of our activities. We are happy to send you a list of particular needs and funding opportunities—simply email director Mary Fessenden at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
There are two ways to give:
- Make a gift online at Cornell's Alumni, Parents & Friends page
- When you reach the Alumni, Parents & Friends page, click the “make your selection” circle, which will take you to a list of possibilities. When there, scroll to the second heading – Cornell University – and select “Other – Cornell.” After doing so, click on “Continue,” which will return you to the first page. When there, input what amount you’d like to donate, and type in “Cornell Cinema” in the long rectangular box provided. The rest should be straight forward!
- Send a check payable to
