Avalon Annual Fund
The Avalon has spent over a decade serving the local community. Your support of the Avalon Annual Fund allows us to continue that outreach with innovative film programming found nowhere else in DC.
As a non-profit, the Avalon must raise about 15% of our annual operating expenses that ticket and concession sales do not cover. Your generous contribution to the Annual Fund will help maintain the Avalon Theatre as a vibrant and valued community resource.
In the past year, Annual Fund donations have supported programs like our Wednesday Signature Series, which brings unique films from around the world to the Avalon for single night screenings, and Cinema Classroom at the Avalon, a free program for middle and high school students that has drawn over 800 students from public, private and charter schools during its first two years.
Your continued support makes programs like these – found only at the Avalon – possible.
Your contributions also help to maintain our beautifully restored theater building, the oldest continually operating theater in Washington, DC.
Please help ensure that the Avalon continues to thrive as DC’s only nonprofit, community-focused film center.
