YES! I choose to make a difference with a fully tax-deductible contribution to the Cinema Arts Centre.
About the Vic Skolnick Life of the Cinema Campaign:
Before our Co-Founder and Co-Director, Vic Skolnick passed away in 2010, he used to always talk about how to get our members and patrons more involved in the Life of the Cinema. He often used that phrase when speaking to staff, volunteers, members, and patrons, about his passion for engaging our community in cinema culture, and the culture of giving. For this reason, we found it to be a fitting tribute to name our annual appeal for program and operating support for Vic.
Making a fully tax-deductible gift (above and beyond membership support) is critical to our operational budget!
The Cinema Arts Centre earns an average of $7 per attendee annually, yet our annual expenses average $17 per attendee. That means we need to raise an extra $10 for everyone who comes to a CAC program. Your fully tax-deductible gift (in addition to your membership support) makes you part of the movement that helps us deliver our mission, to bring the best in cinematic artistry to our community, year after year.
Your contributions fund the programs you love!
Our independent audits consistently show that we spend about 80% of our revenue on program expenses, and only 20% on all administration, overhead and fundraising.
This year, our campaign must raise $140,000.
