Corporate giving can bring many benefits to businesses…especially those within the Midwest. Chicago Film Archives houses, preserves and exhibits almost 70 moving image collections (13,000 films) that are reflections of Midwest culture throughout the twentieth century. They represent all facets of the human experience – family life, play and leisure activities, industry, art, sports, education, the commercial world, travel, neighborhoods, clubs, dance, music, manufacturing, the natural world, politics and oral histories.
With a corporate partnership, these collections and images can strengthen corporate identities, cement client relationships, support employee outreach, and provide numerous public relations opportunities.
Here is how businesses can partner with CFA:
- Adopt a Collection by becoming a preservation partner and have your company’s name attached to a collection’s online description in perpetuity.
- Match employee donations to CFA
- Sponsor a CFA annual program such as Out of the Vault or Home Movie Day. Your company’s name will be part of the headline as a presenter. Ask about our Summer Cinema Series presented throughout Chicago’s west side and south side neighborhoods.
- Buy a company admission ($2,500) to CFA’s annual fundraiser event as a gift to both your employees and to an important Midwest non-profit organization.
CFA ensures that Midwest life and its many moving image legacies are saved for future generations. Become a partner now.
