| Annual Appeal
This year we add a twist to our Annual Appeal. It is NHF’s Silver Anniversary, and we want to celebrate those 25 incredible years by raising at least $1,000 for each year. Please help us get to and over the $25,000 mark; maybe we could double the goal! There are a few ways to make this happen:
Silver Anniversary Screening Series
We are Throughout 2011 we are running a series of screenings highlighting interesting footage from the NHF vaults. In January we highlighted clips from the Moving Images of Work Life project; in May we premiered In Our Wake: Maine’s Maritime Heritage on Film; in August we will focus on land use in Maine; and in November we will screen From Stump to Ship, the project that launched NHF.
A donor has offered $2,500 if we can raise at least that much in matching contributions through these screenings. Please attend a screening and invite others to do the same.
Annual Appeal Mailings
We will send out mailings in early fall and early December asking for your support of the NHF Annual Appeal.
You can visit oldfilm.org at any time and make a contribution to the 2011 Annual Appeal. Share the “new” website link with friends and ask them to support NHF, too.
We are pleased to report that NHF successfully completed the 25/25 Endowment Challenge from the Maine Community Foundation, providing a total of $50,000 in endowment funding.This money counts toward the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant. We have received a $10,000 challenge grant to help complete the $70,000 left for the NEH funding. If we raise an additional $10,000 in endowment donations it will be matched 1:1 by the Golden Rule Foundation.
