While we miss our shared experiences, we are still together thanks to the strength and spirit of the JBFC community.
We need our community now more than ever before. The financial burden of sustaining our programs and campus without earned income is enormous.

An anonymous donor will match all contributions to JBFC TOGETHER dollar for dollar up to $100,000.
Please double your impact on JBFC’s future with a tax-deductible gift. Your contribution will help us preserve our vital and vibrant programs.

We WILL be together again – where we all belong. We will continue to learn, laugh, discover, create, and dream TOGETHER.

We look forward to seeing you back home at the JBFC, when it’s right, for all of us. When that day comes, the JBFC will flourish with experiences, discussions, and evenings around the heavenly world of film, and the wondrous ways it opens our senses to the world and enriches our lives.


Thank you for remaining by our side. We deeply appreciate your important and meaningful contribution to the future of the Jacob Burns Film Center.
