Friends of CFAF: Thank you for being a True Friend!

Your help makes the festival possible.

Even though we are facing tough economic times, CFAF remains committed to offering the films and festival events free of charge. But to enable us to bring all of the great films and fascinating directors to Portland, CFAF must rely on the generous donations of sponsors, festival committee members, volunteers, and audience members.

In 2010, we launched the Friends of CFAF, a fundraising program intended to secure financing to help ensure CFAF can continue to bring this beloved, one-of-a-kind festival to Portland for many years to come. In 2011, we welcomed a total of 79 Friends to CFAF who together contributed $2,245. Thank you!

“Friendship” is renewed on an annual basis. So, we ask that current Friends please renew your commitment today and encourage others to join Friends of CFAF as we prepare for the 22nd festival in 2012.

Annual contributions start at $25 and the sky is the limit! Contributions are tax deductible through the PCC Foundation. Benefits include the satisfaction that you are helping to sustain the festival and the pride that goes along with belonging to a group of diverse and dedicated people bringing important films to a wider audience. Friends also receive e-mails and e-newsletters throughout the year detailing festival news and related events of interest.

To sustain, or join Friends of CFAF, simply click on Donate, and follow the instructions. You can also write a check. Make it payable to the PCC Foundation, noting in the memo field “Friends of CFAF,” and send to: PCC Foundation, P.O. Box 19000, Portland, OR 97280. (The PCC Foundation processes donations for CFAF.)

Thank you for being a Friend of CFAF—and for encouraging others who enjoy the festival to join us!
