Making a Contribution
If you love movies, play a part in saving them. The NFPF helps archives across America preserve and present motion pictures that might otherwise be lost. We also partner with archives in other countries to save long-unseen American films so that they can be screened and studied here at home once again. For this preservation work, we receive federal money on the condition that we match it with donations and grants to keep our programs running. Contributions from film lovers like you make this all possible.
Over the holidays, support our programs with a gift of $200 or more and receive a special thank-you — a DVD set from our award-winning Treasures from American Film Archives series. These DVDs make available rare American films in superbly preserved copies, with new music and program notes. Select from the sets listed here.
