Endowment Fund

Film Forum’s endowment campaign was spurred by an unsolicited challenge grant of $1.25 million awarded in May 2000 by the Ford Foundation as part of its New Directions/New Donors for the Arts program. Led by our former Board Chair, Ned Lord, Film Forum initiated the Campaign for the Future, an effort to raise $6 million for an endowment fund that will assure our future for decades to come.
