Silver Screen Circle

Silver Screen Circle (SSC) members are instrumental in helping us build a thriving campus filled with people of all ages eager to share stories from around the world and tell their own. In grateful appreciation for their generous annual gifts of $2,500 or more, we offer SSC members exclusive benefits.

We hope you will consider a gift at the Silver Screen Circle level to help the JBFC embrace opportunities and challenges during this unprecedented time. Your commitment helps to protect and preserve the future of the JBFC for generations to come.
